  1. 1. Learning lexicology together.
  2. 2. The first step: definition. At the beginning, we should realize what the lexicology is.

  6. 6. In the network of lexicology word meaning is studied. The two main types of meaning are the grammatical and lexical meanings. The lexical meaning has several aspects Denotational Connotational Pragmatic
  7. 7. The denotational aspect of lexical meaning establishes correlation between the name and the object it expresses. The connotational aspect of lexical meaning reflects the speaker’s attitude towards what he speaks about. The pragmatic aspect of lexical meaning conveys information on the situation of communication.
  8. 8. The third step: learning. Well, my work is over. I’ve tried to explain you in a simple way the most important terms of lexicology. And now it’s your turn to work and to learn them. Good Luck!
