Semantics: Theory and Application. Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics (Washington, D.C., 1976).
Rameh, Clea, Ed.
These proceedings of the 1976 Georgetown Round Table are divided into four sections that deal with: (1) synchronic and diachronic aspects of semantics; (2) semantics and linguistics; (3) semantics and other disciplines; and (4) semantics and teaching methods. More specifically the papers treat: the semantic interpretation of anaphoric expressions; metalanguage, pragmatics, and performatives; the search for constraints in semantics and syntax; ethnoscience lexicography and ethnographies; natural language comprehension; logic and grammar; polysemy and the structure of the subjective lexicon; semantics in Spanish language curricula; thematic meaning, word order and indefinite actor sentences in Portuguese; communicative language teaching and pragmatics; and normal hearing and deaf children's acquisition of reading skill between the ages of 2 and 5.
