Title: Introducing Semantics
Written By: Nick Riemer
Description:

Semantics is the study of meaning in language. This clear and comprehensive
textbook is the most up-to-date introduction to the subject available for
undergraduate students. It not only equips students with the concepts they
need in order to understand the main aspects of semantics, it also
introduces the styles of reasoning and argument which characterise the
field. It contains more than 200 exercises and discussion questions
designed to test and deepen readers' understanding. More inclusive than
other textbooks, it clearly explains and contrasts different theoretical
approaches, summarises current debates, and provides helpful suggestions
for further reading. Examples are drawn both from major world languages,
such as Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Spanish and English, and from
minority ones. The book also highlights the connections between semantics
and the wider study of human language in psychology, anthropology, and
linguistics itself.
