LING 040. Semantics


(Cross-listed as PHIL 040 )
In this course, we look at a variety of ways in which linguists, philosophers, and psychologists have approached meaning in language. We address truth-functional semantics, lexical semantics, speech act theory, pragmatics, and discourse structure. What this adds up to is an examination of the meaning of words, phrases, and sentences in isolation and in context.
This course counts for distribution in humanities under the philosophy rubric and in social sciences under the linguistics rubric.
