Platts, Mark, 1997 "Ways of Meaning: An Introduction to A Philosophy of 
Language" 2nd Edition. MIT Press, Cambridge MA.

The philosophy of language is not an isolated philosophical discipline
of merely technical interest to other philosophers. Rather, as Mark Platts
shows, it can help to solve traditional problems in other areas of philosophy 
such as metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. Ways of Meaning provides
an introduction to such issues at the forefront of philosophy. The 2nd
edition contains a new chapter on natural kinds.
