Sažetak
Natural languages express how we categorize the world, reflecting the cognitive process of conceptualization. We wish to demonstrate how features of cognitive processes of categorization, such as identification of semantical domains, are systematically embodied in the syntactic-semantic constructions of natural languages. We apply computational methods on large language corpora focusing on the detection of lexical entities collocated with logical operators and or. For each source lexical item, we enforce a friend-of-a-friend relation (FoF) that yields a graph structure with enhanced distributional semantic aspects. Graph algorithms for community detection identify subgraph structures that are interpreted as semantic domains of a lexeme’s polysemous conceptual matrix. From the semantic perspective, the application of community detection and centrality describe the activation of a specific lexical meaning. Moreover, the systemic perspective of the subgraph relations represents the ontological structure of domains necessary for gaining a comprehensive understanding of a single concept in that communication community. This empirical approach is generally applicable to the analysis of lexical domains in any language, as well as cross-cultural and intra-cultural commensurability. Variation is demonstrated on the example of the graph analysis of the conceptualization of lexeme feeling in English language corpora EnTenTen and comparable lexeme osjećaj in Croatian hrWac corpora. The systemic approach to coordinated construction can enhance various theoretical studies of the syntactic-semantic relations expressed in natural language including domain relatedness, metaphoricity, and synonymy, as well as automate comprehensive meta-reasoning on languages and establish cultural and discourse variations of prototypical conceptualization patterns.
