Studying Semantic Chain Shifts with Word2Vec: FOOD>MEAT>FLESH

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Word2Vec models are used to study the semantic chain shift FOOD>MEAT>FLESH in the history of English, c. 1425-1925. The development stretches out over a long time, starting before 1500, and may possibly be continuing to this day. The semantic changes likely proceeded as a push chain.
