Language, just like any other aspect of culture, is bound to undergo some metamorphosis.
Semantics is one aspect of language in which change is inevitable.This book is an attempt to show how semantic change, in the form of extension (generalisation) and restriction (narrowing) take place in Shona.
The book not only look at how extension and restriction apply in the construction of meaning in Shona, but it also looks at the relationship between a word's original meaning and its the new (extended or restricted) meaning.
