This new edition has been completely revised and updated, and now includes: new sections on classifiers and noun classes, as well as conceptual integration; an extended discussion of theory; additional examples throughout in order to familiarize the student with the practice of semantic description; and increased numbers of chapter exercises along with new solutions.

"This book is an invaluable resource for students and instructors. It offers impressively broad coverage of semantic theory, and it strikes an ideal balance between theoretical developments and empirical investigation.Christopher Potts, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

"This lively and engaging book provides an excellent introduction to current linguistic semantics.Its coverage is comprehensive, taking readers from foundational concepts, through descriptive techniques, to theoretical approaches to the subject. The use of languages other than English to exemplify the discussion is particularly refreshing, and this revised edition will continue to provide teachers with a clear and easy to use textbook, and students with a solid foundation in semantics." Ronnie Cann, Edinburgh University
