Risultato della ricerca: Entry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

There are many different ways of defining the word “semantics”. For instance, according to Eco (2017: 550–551), it is possible to distinguish at least five senses of semantics. That is to say:a. Semantics as the study of the meaning of terms removed from any context [...];b. Semantics as the study of content systems or structural semantics [...];c. Semantics as the study of the relation between term (or sentence) and referent,or as the study of reference [...];d. Semantics as the study of the truth conditions of propositions expressed bysentences;e. Semantics as the study of the particular meaning that terms or sentences assumein context or in the text as a whole [...];With particular reference the last sense, we will try to examine two key concepts ofsemantic analysis: the concept of compositionality and this one of semantic potential.
