Résumé : Lexical semantic change : past considerations, current methods, and future challenges

The past few years have seen a rise in academic interest in computational methods used to measure changes in word meaning over time — lexical semantic change. In this talk, I will provide a history of semantic change ; describe how current computational approaches can solve problems and answer linguistic questions ; and finally, highlight some of the weaknesses and pitfalls of the current state of the art — coverage, noise, evaluation, amnesia, to name but a few — with the aim of shedding light on the future challenges for the field.
