This elementary coursebook has been carefully planned to introduce students to all the main elements of semantics in a simple, step-by-step fashion. Students begin by discovering the value and fascination of studying semantics, and move on to such topics as sense and reference, basic sense relations, simple logic, word meaning, and interpersonal meaning. Each unit of the course includes short sections of explanation and exemplification followed by stimulating practice exercises for the student to complete. Sections of answers and comment enable students accurately to monitor their progress through the course. The innovatory pedagogical structure will be helpful to students following introductory courses in Linguistics and to intermediate students who will find it a useful revision text. The coursebook will also meet the needs of those who wish genuinely to teach themselves about semantics.
