Description The current research on polysemy is still dynamic. This trend is all the more surprising that research on this issue is already dense, along the most influential theories. Indeed, every year, in addition to a constant number of Ph.D. defended on this topic, many studies from researchers whose theories are already well-known in the linguistic background, especially in semantics, come to the debate. Thus Chr. Touratier in the latest version of La Sémantique (2010) puts great emphasis on polysemy whereas Fr. Rastier, in a recent essay (2011), dedicates to it one chapter, entitled "De la polysémie a la monosémie". In general linguistics too, contrastive analysis of polysemy in different languages of the world continue to enhance the debate and lead to change traditional views on the issue. The papers in this issue reinforce the dynamism of the research on polysemy and double entendre.
