A comprehensive introduction to the ways in which meaning is conveyed
in language. Alan Cruse covers semantic matters, but also deals with
topics that are usually considered to fall under pragmatics. A major
aim is to highlight the richness and subtlety of meaning phenomena,
rather than to expound any particular theory. Rich in examples and
exercises, "Meaning in Language" provides an invaluable descriptive
approach to this area of linguistics for undergraduates and
postgraduates alike.

Lingfield(s):	Pragmatics
