Semantics is an accessible and practical introduction to formal semantics, the study of linguistic meaning, for students new to the subject. Semantics:
* shows how meanings are built up and interrelated
* presupposes very little prior knowledge of grammar or linguistic terminology
* includes a glossary of technical terms
* provides a progression of exercises with answers given at the back
* backs up the activities with short, clear explanations
* includes an appendix on sets and functions.
