Unlike conversions where only categorial
meaning changes (Figure 1), or where categorial
meaning changes by figurative extension within the same category and then to a different category or vice versa (Figures 2 and 3), figurative extension is the major process here, is the one that gives rise to conversion, and is also one in which semantic change seems to take place (11) (Figure 4).
We should distinguish between categorial
intentions, which are intentions about what category an artwork belongs to, and semantic intentions, which are intentions about work-meaning.
