    It has been used for linguistic and cultural analysis in such diverse fields as semantics, cross-cultural communication, language teaching, humour studies and applied linguistics, and has reached far beyond the boundaries of linguistics into ethnopsychology, anthropology, history, political science, the medical humanities and ethics. The Semantic barrier in communication can be defined as the misunderstanding and interpretation of meaning which restrict effective communication. It can be in form of language, sign and symbol. The word semantic is credited to the Greek word “semantikos” which indicates “significant”. Semantics is a .

    Semantics is the study of meaning expressed by elements of any language, characterizable as a symbolic system. in language as a means of communication, we do not want to study syntax for its own sake (De Swart , p).

This book is the first in a three-volume set that celebrates the career and achievements of Cliff Goddard, a pioneer of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage approach in linguistics. It has been used for linguistic and cultural analysis in such diverse fields as semantics, cross-cultural communication, language teaching, humour studies and.

The term general semantics was introduced by Alfred Korzybski in the book "Science and Sanity" (). In his Handbook of Semiotics (), Winfried Nöth observes that "General Semantics is based on the assumption that historical languages are only inadequate tools for the cognition of reality, are misleading in verbal communication, and may Author: Richard Nordquist.

In recent decades a revolution in linguistic thought has restored semantics to a central position in the study of language. Geoffrey Leech's book is a study of the issues thus brought to the fore. Linguistic semantics is defined as the study of meanings that humans use language in expression.
