Description:

This handbook comprises, in three volumes, an in-depth presentation of the
state of the art in linguistic semantics from a wide variety of perspectives. It
contains 112 articles written by leading scholars from around the world. These
articles present detailed, yet accessible, introductions to key issues, including
the analysis of specific semantic categories and constructions, the history of
semantic research, theories and theoretical frameworks, methodology, and
relationships with related fields; moreover, they give expert guidance on topics
of debate within the field, on the strengths and weaknesses of existing theories,
and on the likely directions for the future development of semantic research. In
many cases, the articles written for this handbook promise to become the
standard references on the topics they cover. This work will provide an essential
reference for both advanced students and researchers in semantics and related
fields within linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and other areas.
