๐Ÿ“™ Meaning in Language: An Introduction to Semantics and Pragmatics by D. Alan Cruse โ€” free epub


This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the ways in which meaning is conveyed in language. It covers topics normally considered to fall under pragmatics, as well as semantic matters. The author seeks, above all, to display and to explain the richness and subtlety of meaning, and to that end provides abundant examples throughout the text. Numerous exercises (and suggested answers) are provided at every stage.
