Abstract

Reconsiders the approach developed by Raymond Williams for analysing complex words used in cultural and political debate. Contrasts the semantic and lexicographical emphasis of Williams's work with the history of ideas' focus of Tony Bennett et al's New Keywords (Blackwell, 2005). Also argues that new electronic corpus approaches can enrich Williams's close reading method.
