This handbook comprises, in three volumes, an in-depth presentation of the
state of the art in linguistic semantics from a wide variety of perspectives.
It contains 112 articles written by leading scholars from around the world.
These articles present detailed, yet accessible, introductions to key issues,
including the analysis of specific semantic categories and constructions, the
history of semantic research, theories and theoretical frameworks,
methodology, and relationships with related fields; moreover, they give
expert guidance on topics of debate within the field, on the strengths and
weaknesses of existing theories, and on the likely directions for the future
development of semantic research. In many cases, the articles written for this
handbook promise to become the standard references on the topics they cover.
This work will provide an essential reference for both advanced students and
researchers in semantics and related fields within linguistics, psychology,
philosophy, and other areas.

Linguistic Field(s): Generative Linguistics
