Abstract:

The study of meaning in language has developed dramatically over the last
fifty years. Semantics is distinctive as it not only presents a general
introduction to the topic, including the most recent developments, but it
also provides a unique perspective for addressing current issues. It opens
by introducing readers to the study of logic (natural deduction) as the
background against which developments have taken place. This demonstrates
the link between semantics and the study of reasoning and how this view can
provide new solutions to the puzzles that have plagued the approaches
presented in other textbooks. The major subject areas of semantics are
discussed, including quantification, anaphora and discourse, tense and
aspect, ellipsis and context, and word meaning. The book also presents
state-of-the-art research in topics at the forefront of semantics.

1. Preliminaries for model building;
2. The syntax of logical inference;
3. The semantics of logical inference;
4. Quantification and plurality;
5. Anaphora, discourse and context;
6. Time, tense and events;
7. Ellipsis as a window on context;
8. What a word can mean.
