  • Theories of Lexical Semanticsby Dirk Geeraerts

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 34.99

    Theories of Lexical Semantics offers a comprehensive overview of the major traditions of word meaning research in linguistics. In spite of the growing importance of the lexicon in linguistic theory, no overview of the main theoretical trends in lexical semantics is currently available. This book fills that gap by charting the evolution of the discipline... more...

  • About the Speakerby Alessandra Giorgi

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 44.99

    This book considers important aspects of the syntax of sentences and their relation to the extra-sentential context. The relation between a sentence and the context is frequently reckoned to be in some sense <"syntax-free>", in that it is not syntactically represented but introduced post-syntactically by semantic rules of interpretation.... more...

  • How Words Meanby Vyvyan Evans

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 54.99

    How Words Mean introduces a new approach to the role of words and other linguistic units in the construction of meaning. It does so by addressing the interaction between non-linguistic concepts and the meanings encoded in language. It develops an account of how words are understood when we produce and hear language in situated contexts of use. It proposes... more...

  • Linkingby Janet Randall

    Springer 2009; US$ 129.00

    Linking - how semantic arguments map to the syntax - is one of the challenges for theories of the syntax-semantics interface. This title explores the hypothesis that the positions of syntactic arguments are strictly determined by lexical argument geometry. It provides a simple and consistent account of linking. more...

  • Referenceby Barbara Abbott

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 44.99

    This book introduces the most important problems of reference and considers the solutions that have been proposed to explain them. Reference is at the centre of debate among linguists and philosophers and, as Barbara Abbott shows, this has been the case for centuries. She begins by examining the basic issue of how far reference is a two place (words-world)... more...

  • Introducing Semanticsby Nick Riemer

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 40.00

    The most up-to-date introduction to the study of meaning in language available for undergraduate students. more...

  • La structure sémantiqueby Clément Legaré

    Presses de l''niversite du Quebec 1976; US$ 9.00

    Le présent ouvrage met en évidence les caractéristiques spécifiques de cette structure linguistique particulière qu’est le lexème. more...

  • Aspects of Meaning Constructionby Günter Radden; Klaus-Michael Köpcke; Thomas Berg; Peter Siemund

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    Meaning does not reside in linguistic units but is constructed in the minds of the language users. Meaning construction is an on-line mental activity whereby speech participants create meanings on the basis of underspecified linguistic units. The construction of meaning is guided by cognitive principles. The contributions collected in the volume focus... more...

  • Bridging and Relevanceby Tomoko Matsui

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    While it has long been taken for granted that context or background information plays a crucial role in reference assignment, there have been very few serious attempts to investigate exactly how they are used. This study provides an answer to the question through an extensive analysis of cases of bridging. The book demonstrates that when encountering... more...

  • Cognitive Semanticsby Jens Allwood; Peter Gärdenfors

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 158.00

    Toward the end of the 20th century, there is both a dissatisfaction with existing formal semantic theories and a wish to preserve insights from other semantic traditions. Cognitive semantics, the latest of the major trends which have dominated the century, attempts to do this by focusing on meaning as a cognitive phenomenon. This book provides different... more...
