Semantic Theory: A Linguistic Perspective.
Nilsen, Don L. F.; Nilsen, Alleen Pace
This book attempts to bring linguists and language teachers up to date on the latest developments in semantics. A survey of the role of semantics in linguistics and other academic areas is followed by a historical perspective of semantics in American linguistics. Various semantic models are discussed. Anomaly, ambiguity, and discourse are discussed as areas which are open to semantic analysis. Semantic features are analyzed, followed by semantic cases and categories. Finally antonymy, synonymy, paraphrase, and language universals are discussed in the light of various semantic theories. (AM)
