|Title:||Studies in Words|
|Publisher:||Cambridge University Press|
This book is based on lectures given at Cambridge during the last few years and is primarily addressed to students. I have indeed hoped that others also might find it of interest but I must warn them what it is not. It is not an essay in the higher linguistics. The ultimate nature of language and the theory of meaning are not here my concern. The point of view is merely lexical and historical. My words are studied as an aid to more accurate reading and chosen for the light they throw on ideas and sentiments. The notes on some common types of semantic change given in the first chapter are a rough and ready attempt at practical guidance; if any deeper issues are raised by implication, this was not my intention.

Author Bio for Lewis, C. S. (Clive Staples)
Clive Staples or C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was a British literary scholar and novelist. He was a fellow of Magdalen College, a prestigious school at Oxford University. His strong religious background influenced such books as "The Problem of Pain" and "The Screwtape Letters". He is better known for his adult science fiction trilogy: "Out of a Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hideous Strength". This series is heavily influenced by Christian thinking and was inspired by his friendship and association with fellow writers J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Williams. But perhaps his best known stories belong to a series of children's books known as the Chronicles of Narnia which begins with "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe". The series is peppered with Christian allegory and ethics and rates among the most important writing for children in the 20th century.
