The subject of semantics has been appropriated by various disciplines including linguistic philosophy, logic, cognitive psychology, anthropological linguistics, and computer technology. As a result, it is difficult to define the study of semantics as an actual discipline without discovering what each field using a semantic approach to its subject matter... more...

Provides an understanding of the way meaning works in natural languages, against a background of how we communicate with language.

Die Verwendung des lateinischen Wortes »virtus« ist in den Schriften des Mittelalters nahezu omnipräsent. Gleichzeitig ist das Konzept, das mit dieser Vokabel verbunden wird, mehrdeutig und schillernd. Was uns heute als »Tugend« verständlich erscheint, hat eine semantische Karriere hinter sich, die sich zwischen so unterschiedlichen Bedeutungen wie... more...

The aspectual interpretation of sentences is constrained by the truth conditions predicates impose on points of times or time intervals. Using data from English, Vendler (1967) established a classification of four verb types on these grounds, that has been widely accepted in linguistic theory.

For Roy Harris, the fundamental problem about linguistics is that it has been led astray by the fact that we are capable intellectually of ?decontextualising? our own verbal behaviour. A whole interlocking system of doctrines about forms, meanings and communication has arisen designed to support the idea that one particular kind of decontextualising... more...

The work assumes that the primary task of a theory of linguistic meaning is to describe the meaning of speech acts. This in turn presupposes a theory of semantics and a theory of prosodic meaning, as well as a proper treatment of the co-operative principle, context and background information. These matters are dealt with in detail. The second task... more...

The study of opacity falls under the general programme of showing how the meaning of any complex sentence is composed from the meanings of its constituent clauses, phrases and words. Opaque constructions are special from this point of view because the compositional principles that determine their meaning are so intricate. The main argument of this... more...
