Introduction to theoretical linguistics by John Lyons( Book )

221 editions published between 1968 and 2001 in 10 languages and held by 2,423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive introduction to theoretical linguistics. It presupposes no previous knowledge and terms are defined as they are introduced; but it gives a rigorous and technical treatment of a wide range of topics, and brings the reader to an advanced level of understanding. Since its first publication in 1968 Introduction to Theoretical Linguistics has been one of the classic introductions to the discipline. In a field which is often seen as rapidly moving, it will continue to be used by students seeking an overview of the central areas of linguistics - phonetics and phonology, grammar and semantics - and to be of great value to anyone interested in the ways in which theory can help to explain the key problems of human language

Linguistic semantics : an introduction by John Lyons( Book )

43 editions published between 1909 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book, designed as a textbook for introductory study of semantics within college-level linguistics, focuses on the study of meaning as it is systematically encoded in the vocabulary and grammar of natural languages. The term "semantics" is presumed here to include pragmatics. An introductory section explains fundamental theoretical and metalinguistic concepts, including terminology and basic theories of meaning. Three subsequent sections address in detail three different areas of semantics: lexical meaning (words as meaningful units, defining the meaning of words, and the structural approach to lexical semantics); sentence-meaning (meaningful and meaningless sentences, sentence-meaning and proposition content, and formalization of sentence-meaning); and utterance-meaning (speech acts and illocutionary force, text and discourse, context and co-text, and subjectivity of utterance). Contains a list of references for further reading and a substantial bibliography. Contents are also indexed. (Mse)
