Many beginning students in philosophy of language find themselves grappling with dense and difficult texts not easily understood by someone new to the field.  This book offers an introduction to philosophy of language by explaining ten classic, often anthologized, texts.  Accessible and thorough, written with a unique combination of informality and careful formulation, the book addresses sense and reference, proper names, definite descriptions, indexicals, the definition of truth, truth and meaning, and the nature of speaker meaning, as addressed by Frege, Kripke, Russell, Donnellan, Kaplan, Evans, Putnam, Tarski, Davidson, and Grice.  The explanations aim to be as simple as possible without sacrificing accuracy; critical assessments are included with the exposition in order to stimulate further thought and discussion.
