Aimed at students of linguistics and those studying language as part of a wider course, Learning About Language is a series of introductions to fundamental topics in language, linguistics and related areas. Semantics is the study of how we communicate in language and this book will be accessible to the student without any formal knowledge of the subject. The book provides an introduction to the subject, giving the student a broad understanding of the way meaning works in naturally evolved human language. Key Features * Avoids theoretical terminology and linguistic theories and concentrates instead on the analysis of meaning. Looks in depth at such subjects as opposites and negatives, modal verbs, prepositions and word meanings. Introduces some relatively new facts and viewpoints that will be of great interest to specialists of semantics in linguistics and relevant neighbouring areas. It is aimed at undergraduates, but should also beneficial to students of foreign languages.
