About the Book

Meaning. being the core of the existential reality of language, need to be comprehended and analyzed. properly grasped and talked about. The first part of this book, Semantics, Stylistics and Pedagogics, is planned to strengthen our comprehension of the 'meaning facet of language at 'isolable' level (lexical) and also at 'combinatorial' level (discoursal). The way 'meaning' is viewed and analyzed at different times and in different intellection traditions is presented in the first three chapters which constitute the part called Semantics. The fourth chapter constitutes the second part of the book-Stylistics-dealing with the way 'meaning' is juiced out from a text. One can even say that we actually juice out meaning for a text because the meaning is actually a response from the aesthetic and cognitive capabilities of a reader. So the 'grasping of meaning of a text is again a dynamic process comprising denotative, connotative and suggestive responses. The third part of the book Is 'Pedagogics' which subsumes 'androgogics' too. Here we see how the language teacher who has comprehended and grasped 'meaning' conveys it to the student in the classroom. This conveying is actually facilitating comprehension and grasping in the minds of the students.

Preface

Language is semogenic system, i.e., meaning-creating system. Since there can be no meaning without expression, a language event is treated as "doubly articulated" system comprising a "plane of content" and the "expression plane". Meaning then is "the transduction of the phenomenal back into the phenomenal via these two interfaces of content and expression" (Halliday 2002 : 304-355) Halliday adds: "... meaning is a mode of action engaged at the intersection of the material (or phenomenal) and the conscious, as complementary modes of experience.... By the act of meaning, consciousness imposes order on the phenomena of experience" (ibid: 364).

Language, as a system though complex, is learnable and teachable. This has been made possible by the linguists who have shown it as describable.

Meaning, being the core of the existential reality of language, needs to be comprehended and analyzed, properly grasped and talked about. The first part of this book, 'Semantics', is planned to strengthen our comprehension of the "meaning" facet of language at 'isolable' level (lexical) and also at 'combinatorial' level (discourse). The way 'meaning' is viewed and analyzed at different times and in different intellection traditions is presented in the first three chapters which constitute the part called Semantics. The fourth chapter constitutes the second part of the book, ' Stylistics ', dealing with the way 'meaning' is juiced out from a text. One can even say that we actually juice out meaning for a text because the meaning is actually a response from the aesthetic and cognitive capabilities of a reader. So the 'grasping' of meaning of a text is again a dynamic process comprising denotative, connotative and suggestive responses. The third part of the book is 'Pedagogics' which subsumes `androgogics' too. Here we see how the language teacher who has comprehended and grasped 'meaning' conveys it to the student in the classroom. This conveying is actually facilitating comprehension and grasping in the minds of the students.

This tridental activity of 'meaning' study is expected to be of a great help to students, teachers and scholars working on different texts.

In his Foreword to an earlier version of a part of this book, Professor Braj B. Kachru very graciously said that the book was going to be useful to teachers, students and also teacher trainers and researchers.

This volume is intended to be richer and more comprehensive.

We also dedicate this book to the memory of Professor Braj B. Kachru with great admiration for his work and deep appreciation for his support to younger scholars.
