I find the following sentence, currently the opening sentence of the last paragraph, difficult to understand:
- "A question asked is if meaning is established by looking at the neighbourhood in the semantic net a word is part of and by looking at the other words it occurs with in natural sentences or if the meaning is already locally contained in a word." —Anthony.Sebastian 21:12, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
- Well, this is an external article...
- I think 'A question asked...' means 'One question to consider is...'. Poor style. The rest seems to be a not-terribly-good go at the issue of whether words have inherent meaning or only relative to one another. Actually, the whole page could be deleted. John Stephenson 02:40, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
- Change "if" to "whether"? Peter Jackson 09:26, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
The current text has "Lexical units are the words", but I'd include idioms and some types of phrase as part of lexis. Sandy Harris 07:24, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
