NECK / VOICE / SPEECH in Senegambia: a lexical graph of cross-linguistic semantic shifts

Abstract : Visualizing lexica with interconnected linguistic entities in networks is now largely used and admitted. This requires however much information and rich data. Poorly endowed languages lack them frequently. This contribution aims to reduce this gap. In a lexical and areal typological perspective, I explore patterns of recurrent semantic shifts NECK-VOICE-SPEECH in Senegambia (West-Africa), a contact area between Atlantic and Mande languages.
