Distributed for Center for the Study of Language and Information

Form and Meaning in Language

Volume I, Papers on Semantic Roles

The early papers collected here trace a trajectory through the work and thinking of Charles Fillmore over his long and distinguished career—reflecting his desire to make sense of the workings of language in a way that keeps in mind questions of language form, language use, and the conventions linking form, meaning, and practice.
