“What’s the word for the meaning of a word changing over time?”
“I don’t know. Is there a word for that?”
Turns out there wasn’t. What I did find was a term called “semantic change” in diachronic linguistics which refers to the meaning of a word changing over time . . . But there wasn’t a word for it. And so the word was born.
A combination of serere, the Latin verb “to sow” and semantics, an offshoot of the Greek word for “significance” . . . How seremantic.
