Book Information

   

Title: Philosophy for Linguists : An Introduction
Written By: Siobhan Chapman
Description:

'A much needed resource, boiling down the daunting mass of philosophical writings on language to a clear and readable introduction to who said what and why.' Catriona McPherson, University of Leeds. 'Philosophy for Linguists' provides students with a clear, concise introduction to the main topics in the philosophy of language. Focusing on what linguists need to know and how philosophy relates to modern linguistics, the book is structured around key branches of linguistics: semantics, pragmatics, and language acquisition. Assuming no prior knowledge of philosophy, Siobhan Chapman traces the history and development of ideas in the philosophy of language and outlines the contributions of specific philosophers. The book is highly accessible and student-oriented and includes:

* a general introduction and introductions to each chapter
* numerous examples and quotations
* comprehensive suggestions for further reading
* an extensive glossary of linguistic terms.
