Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Semantics provides a broad and state-of-the-art survey of this field, covering semantic research at both word and sentence level. It presents a synoptic view of the most important areas of semantic investigation, including contemporary methodologies and debates, and indicating possible future directions in the field.

Written by experts from around the world, the 29 chapters cover key issues and approaches within the following areas:

  • meaning and conceptualisation;
  • meaning and context;
  • lexical semantics;
  • semantics of specific phenomena;
  • development, change and variation.

The Routledge Handbook of Semantics is essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students working in this area.
