Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was delighted to find an introductory book aimed at students of language written by someone with an eye toward where semantics and pragmatics overlap (I think it's a terrible misfortune that they are separate disciplines). Cruse's 3rd/2011 edition is a wonderful pragmatic-oriented survey of issues in (primarily English) semantics. It gives clear and concise summaries of many important topics (emphasizing lexical semantics, reference, and pragmatic inferences), along with penetrating examples, and--unlike many of its siblings--does not get hung up on idiosyncratic examples or convoluted formalisms. The author has a great sense of humor aimed at those who appreciate wordplay, presumably everyone who would consider reading it.
