The book offers a novel exploration into the semantic development of English terms concerning the concept of `joy' ("bliss", "cheer", "delight", "dream", "game", "gladness", "glee", "joy", and "mirth"). The analysis, carried out within the framework of cognitive and historical linguistics, employs the notions of cognitive domains, profiling, and categorisation. The author adopts a panchronic perspective, according to which language reflects the way speakers experience the world. This allows her to provide a new insight into the intrinsic nature of semantic change.
