Abstract:

The advent of the new discipline of Formal Semantics around forty years ago
has resulted in a vast expansion in our knowledge and theoretical
understanding of grammatical meaning. Semantics for Latin collects together
this new material, applies it to Latin, and makes the results accessible to a
Classical audience. The issues confronted by Formal Semantics are mostly those
that comprise the core subject matter of Latin grammar. Formal Semantics,
however, is not just a new way of doing an old subject: the richness and
explanatory depth of its analyses, together with their striking elegance and
precision, go far beyond anything that was achieved by the rather vague
notional semantics used in our classroom textbooks and in the standard German
reference grammars. Thus, apart from its intrinsic interest, the material in
this book will be of real practical value to students and teachers of Latin
and, more generally, to scholars engaged in any discussion of Latin textual
meaning.
