Callow, Kathleen. 1998. Man and message: a guide to meaning-based text analysis. Lanham: Summer Institute of Linguistics and University Press of America. xvi + 383 pp.


This book aims to look into how a linguist can examine a text and describe how it was put together, what it means, and what it is for. It explains the basic concepts of linguistic semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, and grammar-meaning versus grammar-use. It shows by principle, example, and style how the receiver of a message is able to know what its sender intended.
