7173, and the standard error for residuals decreases slightly. However, Heterodox concept features and onomasiological heterogeneity 35 because these differences are not fundamental, neither from a technical or an interpretative point of view, we again concentrate on the original model that includes the 23 observations. Now, what can we conclude from the results as presented in the table? In the first place, with more than 61% of explained variation (see the figure indicated by Adjusted R squared), the model may be considered a good one.

If we wish to investigate more than one concept at a time, uniformity U is defined as the average of uniformity ratings obtained for isolated concepts, whereas uniformity U’ is defined as the weighted average of the relative frequency of each concept in the researched samples. The weighted uniformity U’ is calculated as follows: n U ' ( Y 1 , Y 2 ) = ∑ U ( Y 1 , Y 2 ). G i =1 Zi Zi Lexical convergence and divergence in Portuguese 47 The uniformity U’ for a set of concepts Z between two samples Y1 and Y2 equals the sum of U-values for Zs weighted by the relative frequencies G of Z within the total set of Zs.

In particular, the linguistic development of prototype theory (see Geeraerts 2006) has brought to the attention a number of non-traditional semasiological features that may well influence the type of onomasiological variation that occurs across lectal boundaries. One such heterodox aspect is vagueness of meaning: if lexical meanings cannot always be easily distinguished, couldn't we perhaps expect more onomasiological heterogeneity when concepts are less clearly distinguishable? If the conceptual boundaries are unclear, different lexical choices between dialects may well occur more readily.
