Abstract

The notion <i>motivational network</i> is proposed to describe the existence of various possibilities of motivation for a given form. As shown in questionnaire studies, this phenomenon is quite common for non-linguist native speakers. But the notion of motivational network is also justified from a cognitive perspective: in the mental lexicon, words in a word family are structured as multidirectional networks, resulting in the co-activation of all family members. Thus, the coexistence of various equally salient motivational partners should not be regarded as exceptional but rather as the default case in lexical motivation.
