Abstract:

This book provides an engaging introduction to semantics for students
new to the field. It covers the basic concepts and methods of the
field and discusses some of the most important contemporary lines of
research.

Semantics is divided into three parts: the first establishes the place
of semantics within linguistics and its relationship to other
disciplines. The second introduces key topics in the description of
word and sentence meaning. The final part reviews the three main
current theoretical approaches to semantics: componential theory,
formal semantics and cognitive semantics. Each chapter contains
exercises that familiarize the student with the practice of semantic
description.

The second edition of this classic work is a complete revision that
updates and extends the discussion of theories and is a vital resource
for students of semantics.
