    Books in Language and Linguistics: Syntax and Semantics published or distributed by the University of Chicago Press.

    Frantic and frenetic share a common etymological source — along with frenzy and words associated with psychiatric conditions and a discredited pseudoscience — but the adjectives differ in connotation.. The words derive from the Greek noun phrenitis, meaning “inflammation of the brain.”Phrenetikos, the adjectival form, was borrowed into Latin as phreneticus, which led to the Old French. In this book, Bryan R. Weaver and Kevin Scharp promise to bring clarity to the messiness of philosophical theorizing about reasons by providing a semantics for 'reason' as a count noun in ordinary English. Weaving through a wide range of topics connected to reasons, they take especially sharp aim at theorists who have called the distinction between different contents expressible using the word.

Semantics – The Study of Meanings That Are Unconsciously Understood.
