"Semantics, or semasiology, is the study of the meaning of words. One cannot elaborate this bald introductory sentence without plunging forthright into the subject matter itself. Semantics shows how most of our words each have many meanings; and the word "semantics" itself - the name of the study of "the meaning of meaning" - is no exception" (From the first chapter of the book).
