    Overview

    • state of the art in linguistic semantics
    • great number of distinguished scholars and experts in the field
    • for the first time available as paperbacks

    Aims and Scope

    Explore the exciting research where semantics meets morphology, syntax and pragmatics. In this book, leading researchers use in-depth articles to explain a wide range of topics at these interfaces, including the semantics of intonation, inflection, compounding, argument structure, type shifting, compositionality, implicature, context dependence, deixis and presupposition. Now in paperback for the first time since its original publication, the highly cited material in this book is an ideal starting point for anyone interested in semantics where it crosses over with other dimensions of grammar.

    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)
