Review: Semantics

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

It does its job. I'm finding it hard to rate the book as I'm simply not that into semantics as compared to syntax or morphology. Still, it's very approachable, covers its ground, easy to read. The book is also well organized. Read full review
