WHEN TAKEN AS A THEORY OF MEANING ANALYZE AND DISCUSS HOW THE 'SEMANTIC FIELD' OR 'SEMANTIC COMPONENT' METHOD COMPARES WITH THE 'REFERENCE' OR ‘CONCEPT’ THEORY. Name Institution Course Date Discuss How As A Theory Of Meaning The 'Semantic Field' Or 'Semantic Component' Method Compares With The 'Reference' Or ‘Concept’ Theory. Introduction This paper looks at the manner in which semantic field or semantic component when used as a theory of meaning compares with referential as well as concept theory. As a theory of meaning semantic field theory suggest that the lexical content of a language can best be treated as a set of interconnected networks of relations between words rather than an aggregation unstructured or independent list of words. Referential theory on the other hand looks at the meaning of a word in terms of what it points out; that is the object that a word denotes is its fit in a theory of RT. As a result the CA method deconstructs these lexemes after laying them out in the semantic field. Bibliography Benjamins John. 2016. Exercise 6.4: Lexical Fields. Benjamins.com. N.p..
