Title: Meaning in Language
Subtitle: An Introduction to Semantics and Pragmatics, 3rd ed
Written By: Alan D. Cruse
URL: http://www.us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/SemanticsPragmaticsPhilosophyofL/?view=
Series Title: Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

A comprehensive introduction to the ways in which meaning is conveyed in
language. Alan Cruse covers semantic matters, but also deals with topics
that are usually considered to fall under pragmatics. A major aim is to
highlight the richness and subtlety of meaning phenomena, rather than to
expound any particular theory.
