Semantics

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from Meaning)

Semantics (/səmæntɪks/) is the study of meaning in language. It has two main areas: logical semantics, which looks at matters such as sense and reference and presupposition and implication, and lexical semantics, that is, the analysis of words and the relations between them.[1]

It differs from syntax, which is concerned with how words are put together in sentences.
