Item description for Semantic and Lexical Universals (Studies in Language Companion) by Goddard...

Identification of universal human concepts found in all languages can provide us with a tool for interpreting and explaining culture-specific meanings encoded in the language-and-culture systems of the world. This text attempts to empirically test a hypothetical set of semantic and lexical universals across a number of genetically and typologically diverse languages. The book contains three theoretical chapters, as well as discussing individual languages. These include Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Ewe, Miskitu languages of South America, the Australian Aboriginal languages Aranda, Yankunytjatjara, Kayardild, the Austronesian languages Samoan, Longgu, Acehnese, Mangap-Mbula, the Papuan language Kalam and French.
