Good Book

I just finished reading William G. Lycan's Philosophy of Language: A Contemporary Introduction, and highly commend it to anyone looking for a general introduction to, well, philosophy of language. He provides a thorough overview of theories of reference, theories of meaning, and speech-act theory. He also has a wry sense of humor that shows up mostly in the endnotes. Check it out.
