Description:

This lively textbook introduces students and scholars to practical and
precise methods for articulating the meanings of words and sentences, and
for revealing connections between language and culture. Topics range over
emotions, speech acts, words for animals and artefacts, motion, activity
verbs, causatives, discourse particles, and nonverbal communication.
Alongside English, it features a wide range of other languages, including
Malay, Chinese, Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Australian Aboriginal
languages. Undergraduates, graduate students and professional linguists
alike will benefit from Goddard's wide-ranging summaries, clear
explanations and analytical depth. Meaning is fundamental to language and
linguistics. This book shows that the study of meaning can be rigorous,
insightful and exciting.
