Sample text

The stimulus of an adjective like ‘big’ may trigger its antonym or opposite, ‘small’, or a noun with which it is conceptually associated, such as ‘elephant’, or a word with which it occurs in a set phrase or cliché, like ‘bad’, in ‘big bad wolf’, and so on. The examination of associative fields may tell us something about the way in which words are stored in the mind (see Aitchison 1987:73–5). The notion may also be relevant to linguistic change, in that occasionally the form of a word may be influenced by that of a neighbour within the same associative field.

It is rather rare for a phoneme to be borrowed; usually borrowings are pronounced according to the existing phonological system. 6 The form of individual lexical items was sometimes influenced by that of the Germanic synonym, particularly if it resembled the Latin. Hence the initial aspirate of Germanic *hoh ‘high’ was transferred to the Latin altus (>haut), and Latin vespa blended with Germanic wefsa ‘wasp’, to give GalloRomance wespa (>guêpe). More far-reaching changes were wrought in the phonology of the northern dialects, particularly the loss of unstressed vowels and the lengthening and diphthongisation of stressed vowels, due in all probability to the strong stress accent typical of Germanic dialects.

Such major transformations, which were also to have implications for the morphological structure of the language, are responsible for the fact that French has moved much further from the parent language than any other Romance language.
