With more than 500 headwords, the book is replete with advice on how to differentiate commonly confused words and steer clear of verbal trouble. Whether you’re a boomer, a Gen-Xer, or a millennial, if you peruse, browse, or even skim these spindrift pages you will (not shall) become versed in the fine art of differentiation. You will learn, for example, how to tell whether you suffer from pride, vanity, or hubris how to tell whether you’re contagious or infectious how to tell if you’re pitiful or pitiable how to tell if you’re self-centered or self-absorbed how to live an ethical life in a moral universe “This appealing book will help readers over countless lexical stumbling blocks, and encourage clearer and more precise speaking and writing.”—Publishers Weekly “The author of this charming and useful book has made a career out of literary finesse. In his latest effort to ‘clarify the mind and general discourse,’ the ‘professional distinctioneer’ offers witty, wise advice on the right way to deploy some of the English language’s trickiest words, from a and an to zero, zeros, zeroes.”—Yale Alumni Magazine

Concise Encyclopedia of Semantics by Keith Allan Book Summary:

Concise Encyclopedia of Semantics is a comprehensive new reference work aiming to systematically describe all aspects of the study of meaning in language. It synthesizes in one volume the latest scholarly positions on the construction, interpretation, clarification, obscurity, illustration, amplification, simplification, negotiation, contradiction, contraction and paraphrasing of meaning, and the various concepts, analyses, methodologies and technologies that underpin their study. It examines not only semantics but the impact of semantic study on related fields such as morphology, syntax, and typologically oriented studies such as ‘grammatical semantics’, where semantics has made a considerable contribution to our understanding of verbal categories like tense or aspect, nominal categories like case or possession, clausal categories like causatives, comparatives, or conditionals, and discourse phenomena like reference and anaphora. COSE also examines lexical semantics and its relation to syntax, pragmatics, and cognitive linguistics; and the study of how ‘logical semantics’ develops and thrives, often in interaction with computational linguistics. As a derivative volume from Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics, Second Edition, it comprises contributions from 150 of the foremost scholars of semantics in their various specializations and draws on 20+ years of development in the parent work in a compact and affordable format. Principally intended for tertiary level inquiry and research, this will be invaluable as a reference work for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as academics inquiring into the study of meaning and meaning relations within languages. As semantics is a centrally important and inherently cross-cutting area within linguistics it will therefore be relevant not just for semantics specialists, but for most linguistic audiences. The first encyclopedia ever published in this fascinating and diverse field Combines the talents of the world’s leading semantics specialists The latest trends in the field authoritatively reviewed and interpreted in context of related disciplines Drawn from the richest, most authoritative, comprehensive and internationally acclaimed reference resource in the linguistics area Compact and affordable single volume reference format

The Insightful Reader by I. C. Robledo Book Summary:

Read for Insights, Improve Your Life, & Make an Impact * INSIGHTS present you with a shift in the way you think about an idea or topic. They provide you with a realization that you should change the way you think about something and reconsider the actions that you take. * Insights from reading have the power to provide us with priceless nuggets of knowledge and wisdom. For example, you may discover a key piece of advice that helps you move away from a bad situation and to change your life around. Or you may discover words that aid you to help someone close to you in need of advice or support, perhaps helping you to save a life. Seeking out and reading insightful books will help catapult you to higher levels of success, happiness, physical and emotional health, understanding, wisdom, and peace. This is because when you read, you have access to some of the most brilliant and inspirational people of all time, and the lessons they learned. The problem is most of us learn how to read superficially in school, rather than in a deep and meaningful way. Thankfully, The Insightful Reader will help you to choose the right books to read, get more out of what you read, create a better life through reading, and ultimately to become an insightful reader, learner, and thinker. Whether you read hundreds of books or just a few per year, you will benefit from this book. With the insights you acquire through reading, you can change and empower yourself, aid those around you, and ultimately make an impact on the world. Why focus on reading? Reading is a unique vehicle for learning, where the cost in money and time for the insights gained is quite low. A workshop or course will cost magnitudes more, while you may not learn any more than you would from books. Also, you tend to learn much more from reading than you would in audio or video formats, when given the same time. Focus on becoming an Insightful Reader, and you will accomplish your goals much more effectively and efficiently. Internationally bestselling author I. C. Robledo has written The Insightful Reader based on a personal love for reading, learning, and applying what he learns. He has read over 400 books, thousands of general articles, hundreds of academic articles, and hundreds of short stories and poems. Robledo wishes to show you how to improve your reading abilities based on his experience. Inside, you will discover how to: - Find high quality, interesting books efficiently - Hunt for insights instead of meaningless facts - Make more time to read and stop making excuses - Take notes adaptively, depending on your goals - Stop getting distracted while reading - Read different books differently, depending on your purpose - Learn more effectively from very challenging books (e.g., college textbooks or highly technical texts) - Apply what you read - Bonus: 200+ high quality and insightful book recommendations Learn how to read better books and get the most out of them today with The Insightful Reader.
