Meaning in English : An Introduction to Language Study Paperback


This introduction to semantics and the nature of language aims to guide the student and non-specialist through the major ways in which the English language makes meaning.

The author discusses the meaning of linguistic units at all levels of language, from sound to discourse, while studying also the role of theories and models themselves in understanding human linguistic behavior.

Readers are encouraged to think through and evaluate complex ideas and theories for themselves.
