    It combines classical formal semantics and modern dynamic semantics without altering the fundamental paradigm. At the book's core lies a pragmatically motivated notion of a dynamic conjunction of meanings, an idea that is worked out in full formal detail. This is applied to linguistic phenomena that involve anaphora, quantification and : Paul J E Dekker. In recent decades a revolution in linguistic thought has restored semantics to a central position in the study of language. Geoffrey Leech's book is a study of the issues thus brought to the fore.

    Book Description. In this book, first published in , Dr Kempson argues that previous work on presupposition has been mistakenly based on a conflation of two different disciplines: semantics, the study of the meanings assigned to the formal system which constitutes a language, and pragmatics, the study of the use of that system in communication.3/5(2).

    This book is a comprehensive introduction to formal logic. Although it does not have an index, the table of contents is sufficient to provide the reader with an idea of where to find various topics. This book would be useful for a one-semester course in introductory logic, and should allow students to become comfortable with metatheory in later /5(8). Introduction. Anaphora can be generally defined as “subsequent reference to an entity already introduced in discourse” (Safir a; see Representing Anaphoric Dependencies).The study of anaphora spans various fields of linguistics, from formal syntax and semantics to linguistic typology and pragmatics, and from computational linguistics to language processing and language acquisition.

This book explores the semantics and pragmatics of honorifics, Studies in formal semantics book that indicate the degree of formality that a speaker feels is required in interacting with another person.

Although these expressions are found in many languages worldwide, this volume is the first to approach the area from the perspective of formal semantics and pragmatics.

Formal semantics, on the other hand, has attempted to account for the relations between forms and meanings, without necessarily attending to computational concerns. Computational Linguistics and Formal Semantics introduces the reader to the two disciplines and considers the prospects for the more unified and comprehensive computational theory Format: Paperback.

Description: This book provides a systematic study of three foundational issues in the semantics of natural language that have been relatively neglected in the past few decades. focuses on the formal characterization of intensions, the nature of an adequate type system for natural language semantics, and the formal power of the semantic.

In formal semantics, we deal with a class of structures called (formal) languages; they are called languages be-cause they are believed to provide rational reconstruc-tions of (parts of) natural Studies in formal semantics book and, indeed, ade-quate reconstructions relative to certain purposes.

The book proposes a new formal framework that models cross-linguistic and cross-constructional variation in noun modification constructions. The framework it offers enables readers to explicitly map word structure to syntactic structure, providing new insights into, and impacting upon, all current theoretical models of grammar.

Separated into several sections, the book presents discussions on: information structure, speech acts and decisions, philosophical themes in semantics and new formal approaches to semantic and pragmatic theory. Its overarching theme is the relation between different.

Books shelved as semantics: Language in Thought and Action by S.I. Hayakawa, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General. A related discipline, general semantics (so called to distinguish it from semantics in linguistics or philosophy), studies the ways in which meanings of words influence human behavior.

General semantics was developed by Alfred Korzybski. The key term in Korzybski's system is evaluation, the mental act that is performed by the hearer when a word. Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, "significant") is the linguistic and philosophical study of meaning in language, programming languages, formal logics, and is concerned with the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for in reality, their denotation.

Semantics: * shows how meanings are built up and interrelated * presupposes very little prior knowledge of grammar or linguistic terminology * includes a glossary of technical terms. Research on the semantics of spatial markers in French is known mainly through Vandeloise’s (, ) work on static prepositions.

However, interest in the expression of space in French goes back to the mids and focused first on verbs denoting changes in space, whose syntactic properties were related to specific semantic distinctions, such as the opposition between.

Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikos, "significant")is the linguistic and philosophical study of meaning, in language, programming languages, formal logics, and semiotics.

It is concerned with the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for, their denotation.

In international scientific vocabulary, semantics is /5(12). This chapter shows that the treatment of names as having nondescriptive, indefinable senses does not preclude a powerful formal semantics; that the referential properties of names can be treated formally without identifying the meaning of a name with its reference; and that names can be handled within an ideational semantics, or by situation and possible worlds semantics.

Case has not received a lot of attention from formal semanticists, probably because the approach has mostly focused on languages with relatively sparse case systems. This article examines how formal tools are being used in the study of the meaning of case.

There are many semantic aspects of case that lend themselves to such a treatment, such as argument structure, quantification, aspect, and Cited by: 3. This practical coursebook introduces all the basics of semantics in a simple, step-by-step fashion.

Each unit includes short sections of explanation with examples, followed by stimulating practice exercises to complete in 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 /5(3).D.A. Cruse, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, Lexical semantics is the branch of linguistics which is concerned with the systematic study of word meanings.

Probably the two most fundamental questions addressed by lexical semanticists are: (a) how to describe the meanings of words, and (b) how to account for the variability of meaning from context to context.
