Sample text

Without the horizontal-vertical distinction, we can still posit a general meaning for take off, just as we can with dog. Admittedly, genuine examples of multiple meaning, such as the homonymy of light in She wore a light dress ('not dark' or 'not heavy'), may seem to have the same attribute I have just noted for general terms; I must give additional reasons why take off is not multiple like light. My purpose here is to note the possibility, until now neglected, that take off is a combination of take and off and that each of these words and their combination have only a single meaning.

You wake out of a deep sleep and peer out from beneath the covers into your room. You gradually emerge out of your stupor, pull yourself out from under the covers, climb into your robe, stretch out your limbs, and walk in a daze out of your bedroom and into the bathroom. You look in the mirror and see your face staring out at you. You reach into the medicine cabinet, take out the toothpaste, put the toothbrush into your mouth, brush your teeth, and rinse out your mouth. At breakfast you perform a host of further in-out movespouring out the coffee, setting out the dishes, putting the toast in the toaster, spreading out the jam on the toast, and on and on.

This approach initially assumes that lexical form and meaning are fully congruent, and that claims of polysemy, homonymy, and idiomaticity must be substantiated by detailed study, not merely asserted as intuitive insights. This Monosemic Bias implies a priority of research: a full detailed exploration of a word's variant range before considering its possible paraphrase relationships with other lexical items. For example, it claims (as does Kirsner (1972)) that Postal in his treatment of the verb remind (1970) should have first considered a possible unity for all posited meanings for remind before attempting to link one of those meanings to other expressions such as strike as similar.
