Books By Author H. G. Widdowson
Semantics, Paperback (March 2009)
Semantics looks at what words are and how they have multiple meanings and forms. It discusses groupings of lexical items, approaches to analysing the semantic structure of words, and the relationship of meanings to syntactic structure.
Grammar, Paperback (November 2005)
Explains what grammar is, why languages have to have it, and how different languages exploit it. This book includes an introduction on the theoretical and pedagogical approaches to grammatical description, the notion of 'universal grammar', the role of grammar in establishing social and educational norms, and the grammar of International English.
Text, Context, Pretext, Hardback (September 2004)
