Abstract:

Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Understanding Semantics, Second Edition, provides an engaging and accessible introduction to linguistic semantics. The first part takes the reader through a step-by-step guide to the main phenomena and notions of semantics, covering levels and dimensions of meaning, ambiguity, meaning and context, logical relations and meaning relations, the basics of noun semantics, verb semantics and sentence semantics. The second part provides a critical introduction to the basic notions of the three major theoretical approaches to meaning: structuralism, cognitive semantics and formal semantics.

Key features include: a consistent mentalist perspective on meaning, broad coverage of lexical and sentence semantics and examples from a wider range of languages that include German, Japanese, Spanish and Russian. As well as these there are practical exercises on linguistic data and a companion website including all figures and tables from the book, an online dictionary, answers to the exercises and useful links at routledge.com/cw/loebner

This book is an essential resource for all undergraduate students studying semantics.

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics
