    Reviews

    "It’s great news that this outstanding Handbook of Semantics is appearing in paperback, now accessible to individuals as well as to libraries. The Handbook is a masterful achievement, both broad and deep -- it has almost every topic you might want to learn about, in articles generally written by the people you would most want to learn from. A lasting reference work of the highest quality."

    (Barbara H Partee, University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
