Title: Meaning in Language
Subtitle: An Introduction to Semantics and Pragmatics
Written By: Alan D. Cruse
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=019926306X
Series Title: Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

A comprehensive introduction to the ways in which meaning is conveyed in language. Alan Cruse covers semantic matters, but also deals with topics that are usually considered to fall under pragmatics. A major aim is to highlight the richness and subtlety of meaning phenomena, rather than to expound any particular theory. Rich in examples and exercises, "Meaning in Language" provides an invaluable descriptive approach to this area of linguistics for undergraduates and postgraduates alike.
