This book offers an original treatment of the lexical form look. It establishes that the Columbia School conception of an invariant meaning – hitherto found primarily in grammar – is equally operative in core vocabulary items like look and see. The upshot is that grammar and lexicon are both amenable to synchronic monosemic analysis.

Basing their work on a variationist sociolinguistic approach, the authors introduce models and methods used to trace the progress of linguistic changes in the “long” 18th century, 1680–1800.
