This book introduces ideas about word meaning in the context of law. It analyzes cases from common law jurisdictions that concern the meaning, definition and legal status of individual words, labels and categories. The focus is on the question of how law assigns authority over word meaning in different circumstances and in different domains of law.
This paper/monologue aims at probing into the pragmatic inherent nature of language, in general, and the notion of meaning, in particular. It provides a detailed account of several traditional and modern approaches to meaning, arguing for the pragmatic orientation and against the semantic one.In addition, such notions as ambiguity, truth, classical semantic approaches, pragmatic approaches to meaning, criticism of the truth-conditional semantic accounts of meaning, and many other issues have been dealt with. This paper is assigned to shedding critical illuminations on the aforementioned issues, and the mentality with which they are approached is a pragmatic one. In sum, it identifies, while investigating the details of some classical accounts of formal semantics and traditional approaches to meaning, a characterization of the deficiency, or at least the insufficiency, of semantic theories in providing an adequate comprehensive study of meaning. Evidences are given of the claim that almost all linguistic features that are tackled within the domain of semantics are intrinsically pragmatic in nature.

It’s 1990, and New York City is in shambles: unemployment reigns, crack wars rage, and whole neighborhoods burn as delinquent landlords cash in. Struggling to come to terms with his father’s death, paramedic and photographer Frank Verbeckas descends into the chaos and misery of upper Manhattan, taking photographs of the ill, the wounded, the dying, and the down-and-out. Accompanying him on his wanderings are his loudmouthed partner, Burnett; his best friend, Hock, who boosts drugs from the hospital; and his brother, Norman, a surgeon who can’t understand why Frank is in such pain. Frank’s ruin seems inevitable, but when he meets Emily, a professional fencer whose days are numbered by a fatal illness, his world changes. Against everyone’s advice, Frank and Emily fall in love. Together, they try to find a way out of the murk of guilt and sadness and learn to draw meaning and beauty from despair.In short, cinematic scenes, with not a word wasted and nothing told that can be shown, Shannon Burke leads us on a powerful journey through the darkest precincts of the street and of the soul. Honest, terse, and enormously moving, Safelight is a debut of remarkable depth, a stunning, clear-eyed, and sympathetic portrait of American life and death–a love story not for the faint of heart.
Killer-for-hire Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets two unlikely new business partners at a 1-star hotel: one, an atheist former Protestant vicar fired from her church, and the other the hotel’s receptionist, the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire. Together they cook up an idea for an enterprising venture involving Swedish gangsters that is set make them all a fortune - until, all of a sudden and to everyone’s surprise, Anders finds Jesus.Anders’ sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul, but it’s not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.As wildly funny and unexpected as Jonasson’s previous bestselling novels, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is a zany, feel-good adventure story, tenderly and hilariously exploring belief, redemption, and the fact that it’s never too late to start again.

It's always awkward when five thousand kronor goes missing. When it happens at a certain grotty hotel in south Stockholm, it's particularly awkward because the money belongs to the hitman currently staying in room seven. Per Persson, the hotel receptionist, just wants to mind his own business, and preferably not get murdered. Johanna Kjellander, temporarily resident in room eight, is a priest without a vocation, and, as of last week, without a parish. But right now she has two things at her disposal: an envelope containing five thousand kronor, and an excellent idea ...Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and many crates of Moldovan red wine. Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonasson's multimillion-copy bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.
