Given domains like procreation and defecation, taboo is obviously relevant for the lexical field of the human body. Negative affect is not restricted to such obvious taboo areas, however. e. we find concepts that are explicitly marked as negative and that were surveyed as such. Examples are NEUS (SPOTNAAM) ‘nose (pejorative)’, GEZICHT (SPOTNAAM) ‘face (pejorative)’, and HOOFD (SPOTNAAM) ‘head (pejorative)’. In practical terms, we did not start from these labels, but we used the same method for the identification of negative affect as for the identification of lack of familiarity: seven members of our research group rated the 206 bodily concepts in the database on a five point scale of negative affect, with 1 indicating no negative affect, and 5 a strong negative affect.
Although we consider this to be an exploratory study, the overall results will be indubitable: concept features have a marked effect on heteronymy. In disciplinary terms, the present study intends to contribute to three strands of research. First, it continues the line of quantitative, usage-based studies of onomasiological variation that was developed in our Leuven research group in the wake of Geeraerts, Grondelaers and Bakema (1994) and Geeraerts (1997): see Geeraerts, Grondelaers and Speelman (1999), and compare Speelman, Grondelaers and Geeraerts (2003) for an introduction to the methodological background.
Formal onomasiological variation, of which contextual variation is an integral part, is essentially the most specific subject of sociolexicology and of this study. Data was gathered from the lexical fields of football and fashion/clothing due to their popularity and the fact that they are susceptible to the influence of foreign languages. A third lexical field is still under study – health. The empirical background of this sociolexicological study consists of several thousand observations of the use of denotational synonyms which designate 43 nominal concepts from football and clothing terminologies.
