Review:

"On the whole, the volume is of good quality, a valuable endeavour for bringing together linguistics and the philosophy of language. ... I find the volume very useful, quite easy to consult and use in teaching and research, especially valuable for under and postgraduates and I really believe that it
filled a gap when this was really needed."--Linguist List 17.188
