For over 50 years, Language in Thought and Action has examined language through the lens of modern semantics. With an understanding of the roles and different uses of language, one can better communicate with those around them. Like the first edition, Language in Thought and Action uses poignant and relevant examples to better explain the subtleties and nuiances of language.
