Title: Semantics
Subtitle: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
Edited By: Javier Gutiérrez-Rexach
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
Description:

This set brings together the most important contributions to semantic theory ranging from Gottlob Frege's 1892 essay "On Sense and Reference" to recent cutting-edge scholarship from leading journals in the field.

The collection is structured around three major themes:

* Fundamental notions, the relations between semantics and grammar and the relations between meaning and cognition
* The semantics of basic grammatical constructions and structures, such as the semantics of determiners, nouns, adjectives and related topics including quantifier scope and the definiteness/indefiniteness distinction.
* Topics related to sentential and discourse semantics: events and thematic roles, tense, aspect and modality, negation, ellipsis, questions, pronouns and the semantics/pragmatics interface.
