520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. This dissertation addresses issues in lexical categorization. The main research question is how the meanings of a complex lexical item can best be represented. More specifically, I ask how many meanings are to be postulated, and whether and how these different meanings are related to each other. The focus of the study is on the Japanese particle, <italic>ni </italic>, whose senses are wide-ranging and span many different grammatical categories. Traditional models of lexical meaning or linguistic categorization simply cannot handle such diversity of behavior within a single lexical category in any coherent way. This study comprises a unified and empirically grounded analysis of <italic>ni</italic>'s diverse behavior.
520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. Based on a detailed semantic analysis of an extensive array of synchronic data, I propose a network model for the semantic structure of <italic>ni</italic>, taking into account the highly polysemous nature of <italic>ni</italic>. By polysemous, I mean that one linguistic form is associated with multiple meanings. In fact, <italic>ni</italic> seems to be highly heterosemous (i.e., one form is associated with multiple meanings and grammatical functions) as a lexical item. The proposed domain-based model accommodates the diverse senses of <italic> ni</italic> by integrating them in terms of image schemas and metaphorical extensions. I argue that although <italic>ni</italic> exhibits extensive semantic diversity in its equally extensive syntactic distribution, such variation is far from random or idiosyncratic. Even seemingly contradictory senses exhibit some similarities when examined closely.
520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. The model is then subjected to assessment and evaluation by various empirical and experimental data. Data from a grammaticalization study of <italic>ni </italic> and similar particles in typologically diverse languages indicate how the semantic distribution that <italic>ni</italic> exhibits synchronically may be associated with the grammaticalization pathways that it has undergone through its semantic development. Data from a text count study, a child acquisition study, and a series of off-line psycholinguistic experiments, also support the main characteristics of the proposed model. It is claimed that a network model for this lexeme can best handle its complex syntactic behavior and semantic functions, although the specific configuration of any representational model is very much task- and context-dependent.
