Natural Language Semantics discusses fundamental concepts for
linguistic semantics. This book combines theoretical explanations of
several methods of inquiry with detailed semantic analysis and
emphasises the philosophy that semantics is about meaning in human
languages and that linguistic meaning is cognitively and functionally

Providing the reader with the basic tools and skills needed to
progress to original research, this volume introduces fundamental
assumptions about meaning in language, discusses lexicological
semantics, and explains formal semantic tools. It reviews cognitive
and functional approaches to semantics, investigates the internal
semantics of clauses and turns from the semantics of predicates to the
internal semantics of noun phrases. Throughout each chapter, exercises
are provided to reinforce the text and facilitate learning.
