I Will Wow You! Pragmatic Interjections Revisited

Tayebi Tahmineh, Parvaresh Vahid

Abstract


This study sets out to focus on the nature of changes some major interjections have gone through. To achieve this end, different processes of word formation and semantic change are put under scrutiny. In this vein, the significant role of frequency and the gradual movement of these changes are underscored. Additionally, the study demonstrates how what is generally known as reanalysis can account for functional shifts. The study also touches upon what is usually described as innovation.Key words: Innovation; Interjection; Reanalysis; Semantic change
