Robert A. Chametzky - Author

On Monosemy
On Monosemy (July 1989)
A Study in Linguistic Semantics
Charles Ruhl - Author

In this book, the author argues that words should be presumed initially to be monosemic: having a single, highly abstract meaning. Semantic research should first seek a unitary meaning, resorting to polysemy, homonymy or idiomaticity only when an extended attempt fails. Utilizing a large data base, this book shows that some supposed "lexical" semantic meaning is actually pragmatic or extralinguistic. Included are extensive treatments of the verbs ...(Read More)

"This book represents an emerging area, research in which will provide important new insights into both the languages under study and the theories involved. It is a very timely book, and a good one. All linguists working on Amerindian languages should buy it, and I suspect many theoreticians will as well." -- Elizabeth A. Cowper, University of Toronto

Informal Lectures on Formal Semantics
Informal Lectures on Formal Semantics (May 1989)
Emmon Bach - Author

"Books like this do not come along often. A true authority in this field has taken the time to write a non-technical introduction. No introduction of this kind is likely to be written by anyone else." -- David Dowty, Ohio State University

This book is an introduction to the current developments in model-theoretic semantics, which has become an essential part of the work in theoretical linguistics over the last decade. The author examines t...(Read More)
