Description

This practical coursebook introduces all the basics of semantics in a simple, step-bystep
fashion. Each unit includes short sections of explanation with examples, followed
by stimulating practice exercises to complete the book. Feedback and comment
sections follow each exercise to enable students to monitor their progress. No previous
background in semantics is assumed, as students begin by discovering the value and
fascination of the subject and then move through all key topics in the field, including
sense and reference, simple logic, word meaning, and interpersonal meaning. New
study guides and exercises have been added to the end of each unit (with online
answer key) to help reinforce and test learning. A completely new unit on non-literal
language and metaphor, plus updates throughout the text, significantly expand the
scope of the original edition to bring it up-to-date with the modern teaching of
semantics for introductory courses in linguistics as well as intermediate students.
JAMES R. HURFORD is Professor of General Linguistics, University of Edinburgh.
BRENDAN HEASLEY is Consultant (Postgraduate Training), Sharjah Women’s
College, United Arab Emirates.
MICHAEL B. SMITH is Associate Professor of Linguistics, Oakland University.
