Anu Koskela's research is concerned with lexical semantics (word meaning), particularly from a cognitive linguistic perspective. Her main research interests are the multiplicity of word meaning and lexical semantic relations. Most of her research has examined the phenomenon of ‘vertical polysemy’ or ‘autohyponymy’, where a word has a broader and a narrower reading (e.g. drink ‘consume liquid’; ‘consume alcohol’). She is the co-author (with M. Lynne Murphy) of Key Terms in Semantics (2010, Continuum).
