  6. Dirk Geeraerts (1997). Diachronic Prototype Semantics: A Contribution to Historical Lexicology. Oxford University Press.
    Prototype theory makes a crucial distinction between central and peripheral sense of words. Geeraerts explores the implications of this model for a theory of semantic change, in the first full-scale treatment of the impact of the most recent developments in lexicological theory on the study of meaning change. He identifies structural features of the development of word meanings which follow from a prototype-theoretical model of semantic structure, and incorporates these diachronic prototypicality effects into a theory of meaning change.

    It is often said that prototypically structured concepts are a counterexample with regard to the classical view of categorization, viz. that categories always have a single definition in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions. However, such statements about the nature of prototypicality do not take into account the distinction between vagueness and ambiguity. In particular, they are never accompanied by a specification of the criteria according to which the allegedly prototypical concepts are indeed a single semantic category. An exploration of (...)
