The study of meaning in language has developed dramatically over the last fifty years. Semantics is distinctive as it not only presents a general introduction to the topic, including the most recent developments, but it also provides a unique perspective for addressing current issues. It opens by introducing readers to the study of logic (natural deduction) as the background against which developments have taken place. This demonstrates the link between semantics and the study of reasoning and how this view can provide new solutions to the puzzles that have plagued the approaches presented in other textbooks. The major subject areas of semantics are discussed, including quantification, anaphora and discourse, tense and aspect, ellipsis and context, and word meaning. The book also presents state-of-the-art research in topics at the forefront of semantics.

'... an excellent introduction to natural language semantics.' Klaus von Heusinger, Universit�t Stuttgart, Germany

The study of meaning in language has developed dramatically over the last fifty years. Semantics is distinctive as it not only presents a general introduction to the topic, including the most recent developments, but it also provides a unique perspective for addressing current issues.
"This book is hardly an introduction for beginners. The title suggests that it's for people who are new to the subject, or that it can just be picked up and read by anyone, but that's far from the case. In fact, I had to read several other books just to understand certain parts of this one (including an introduction to logic and set theory). Unless you already know the subject, don't buy this book."
 
"It's not only excellent but also unique 'intermediate' textbook in that it includes very recent developments on context-dependency. Its style is not magnificently lucid but concise and attractive (especially for its 'deductive' presentation).
It's not introduction to logic and You'd better read (e.g.) Gamut's vol.1 before it.(At least, you should ready for studying natural deduction.)"
