Formal semantics - the scientific study of meaning in natural language - is one of the most fundamental and long-established areas of linguistics. This Handbook offers a comprehensive, yet compact guide to the field, bringing together research from a wide range of world-leading experts. Chapters include coverage of the historical context and foundation of contemporary formal semantics, a survey of the variety of formal/logical approaches to linguistic meaning and an overview of the major areas of research within current semantic theory, broadly conceived. The Handbook also explores the interfaces between semantics and neighbouring disciplines, including research in cognition and computation. This work will be essential reading for students and researchers working in linguistics, philosophy, psychology and computer science.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'After half a century of intensive research, formal semantics has become a mature discipline taught in most linguistics departments. The Amsterdam people were among the pioneers, and they offer us what is most needed today: a comprehensive handbook covering the entire field, each chapter of which is written by a world expert. A must read for anyone interested in language.' Francois Recanati, Institut Jean Nicod, Paris
