Book Information


Title: Key Terms in Semantics
Written By: M. Lynne Murphy
Anu Maarit Koskela
Series Title: Key Terms

Key Terms in Semantics explains the all the terms and concepts in
semantics which students on linguistics and language studies course are
likely to encounter during their undergraduate study. The book is organized
alphabetically, and fully cross-referenced. The book includes a section on
key thinkers in semantics, from Aristotle to Noam Chomsky and will be a
valuable desk reference for students throughout their undergraduate course.
The final section presents a list of key readings in semantics, to signpost
the reader towards classic articles, as well providing a springboard to
further study. The book is accessibly written, with complex terms and
concepts explained in an easy to understand and approachable manner.

'Clear, comprehensive and authoritative - this is an ideal companion to any
course on semantics, from introductory to fairly advanced level. Students
will really benefit from the many examples provided and the extensive use
of cross-referencing.'
Paul Bennett, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, School of Languages,
Linguistics and Cultures, University of Manchester, UK
