Grammar and Meaning by F. R. Palmer

Book Description

Since the publication of his Introduction to Theoretical Linguistics (1968), Sir John Lyons became one of the most important and internationally renowned contributors to the study of linguistics. In a career which spanned several decades, he addressed himself to a broad range of issues of fundamental importance and is particularly noted for his seminal two-volume work, Semantics (1977). This volume, which is edited with an introduction by F. R. Palmer, gathers together a collection of essays by distinguished scholars on topics related to Lyons's work. In a concluding essay, Lyons responds to the contributors and reflects on the intellectual underpinning of his own work.
