Routledge is pleased to announce the publication of :

'Philosophy for Linguists : An Introduction'

Siobhan Chapman, University of Liverpool, UK

'A much needed resource, boiling down the daunting mass of
philosophical writings on language to a clear and readable
introduction to who said what and why.' Catriona McPherson, University
of Leeds

'Philosophy for Linguists' provides students with a clear, concise
introduction to the main topics in the philosophy of
language. Focusing on what linguists need to know and how philosophy
relates to modern linguistics, the book is structured around key
branches of linguistics: semantics, pragmatics, and language
acquisition. Assuming no prior knowledge of philosophy, Siobhan
Chapman traces the history and development of ideas in the philosophy
of language and outlines the contributions of specific
philosophers. The book is highly accessible and student-oriented and

* a general introduction and introductions to each chapter
* numerous examples and quotations
* comprehensive suggestions for further reading
* an extensive glossary of linguistic terms.
