Meaning accommodation occurs when a dialogue participant learns new meanings by observing utterances in context and adapting to the way linguistic expressions are used. This paper sketches a formal account
of meaning accommodation, focusing
on the detection of subjectively innovative uses of an expression. It also provides an example of adaptation of lexical meaning to accommodate innovation.
