Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the ways in which
meaning is conveyed in language, covering not only semantic matters but
also topics normally considered to fall under pragmatics. Above all, the
book displays and explains the richness and subtlety of meaning, with the
aid of numerous examples and exercises throughout the text. Highly
readable, written with style and wit, Meaning in Language is not bound to
any particular theory, but provides explanations of theoretical approaches
and perspectives as the context requires, with a stress throughout on the
need for conceptual clarity.

The text and exercises in this third edition have been fully updated to
take into account the most recent developments in the field and new
chapters have been added, one on the semantics of prepositions and another
on the semantics of derivational affixes.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
                            Semantics

Subject Language(s): English (eng)
