Title: Semantics for Latin
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: A. M. Devine
Laurence D. Stephens
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/ClassicalStudies/?view=usa&ci=9780199969524
Description:

The advent of the new discipline of Formal Semantics around forty years ago has resulted in a vast expansion in our knowledge and theoretical understanding of grammatical meaning. Semantics for Latin collects together this new material, applies it to Latin, and makes the results accessible to a Classical audience. The issues confronted by Formal Semantics are mostly those that comprise the core subject matter of Latin grammar. Formal Semantics, however, is not just a new way of doing an old subject: the richness and explanatory depth of its analyses, together with their striking elegance and precision, go far beyond anything that was achieved by the rather vague notional semantics used in our classroom textbooks and in the standard German reference grammars. Thus, apart from its intrinsic interest, the material in this book will be of real practical value to students and teachers of Latin and, more generally, to scholars engaged in any discussion of Latin textual meaning.
