Written By: Howard Jackson
Etienne Zé Amvela
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

Note: This is the second edition of a previously published book.

This textbook is a systematic and accessible introduction to the lexicology
of modern English. Lexicology is the branch of linguistics that studies all
aspects of the vocabulary of a particular language. The book provides an
account of the sources of modern English words and studies the development
of vocabulary over time. It examines:

*What are words?
*Where do English words come from?
*How are words made up?
*How do words 'mean'?
*How are words used?
*How can words be investigated?

This new edition of the best-selling textbook has been revised and updated
throughout. Lists of exercises and figures, summaries of content at the
beginning of each chapter, a revised list of suggestions for further
reading, and a new glossary have been added. Words, Meaning and Vocabulary
is an essential introduction to lexicology for undergraduate students.
