EN 300: Modern Theories of Grammar: Semantics

Semantics Overview

Semantics "is a subfield of linguistics that studies linguistic meaning and how expressions convey meanings... Semanticists study not only word meanings, but also how word meanings combine to produce the meanings of larger phrasal expressions."
