Title: Key Ideas in Linguistics and the Philosophy of Language
Edited By: Siobhan Chapman
Christopher Routledge
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748617586
Description:

This book offers introductory entries on 80 ideas that have shaped the
study of language up to the present day. Entries are written by experts in
the fields of linguistics and the philosophy of language to reflect the
full range of approaches and modes of thought. Each entry includes a brief
description of the idea, an account of its development, and its impact on
the field of language study. The book is written in an accessible style
with clear descriptions of technical terms, guides to further reading, and
extensive cross-referencing between entries. A useful additional feature of
this book is that it is cross-referenced throughout with 'Key Thinkers in
Linguistics and the Philosophy of Language' (Edinburgh, 2005), revealing
significant connections and continuities in the two related disciplines.
Ideas covered range from Sense Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Logic,
through Generative Semantics, Cognitivism, and Conversation Analysis, to
Political Correctness, Deconstruction, and Corpora.

Features:
* The only single-volume reference book to focus specifically on ideas from
both linguistics and the philosophy of language
* Accessibly written for use at all levels, including undergraduate,
postgraduate, academic, and other general readers in the fields of
linguistics and the philosophy of language
* Extensively cross-referenced both within itself and with 'Key Thinkers in
Linguistics and the Philosophy of Language' to provide a unique reference
resource.
