Summary
In this selection of published articles in the area of semantics, Steven Davis and Brendan Gillon try to obtain a representative coverage of topics, approaches, and recognized authors; while choosing articles which have made an important contribution to the field and are accessible to students as well as scholars. The volume will have appeal as a textbook for upper level courses and as a reference for scholars of linguistics, phonology, and philosophy of language. Semantics: A Reader may serve as a companion to Davis's: Pragmatics: A Reader
