Types of Semantics

Asemic Writing
Asemic Writing

Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means "having no specific semantic content," or "without the smallest unit of meaning." With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning, which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret.

In early 2012 we studied citation rates for four front-line semantics journals (Linguistics & Philosophy, Natural Language Semantics, Journal of Semantics, Semantics & Pragmatics) since 2008, the year of our first published article.

Main Article: Conceptual Semantics
Main Article: Conceptual Semantics

Conceptual semantics is a framework for semantic analysis developed mainly by Ray Jackendoff in 1976. Its aim is to provide a characterization of the conceptual elements by which a person understands words and sentences, and thus to provide an explanatory semantic representation (title of a Jackendoff 1976 paper).

Main Article: Lexical Semantics

Geeraerts 2010 is the only currently available overview of the main historical and contemporary trends of research in lexical semantics. Cruse, et al. 2002–2005 is a voluminous collective reference work on all aspects of lexicology, with numerous articles on topics specifically relating to word meaning research. Hanks 2007 is an extensive anthology.

The word ‘semantic ‘as an adjective simply means ‘meaningful’ which is very related to the word 'high level' in computer science. For instances: Semantic data model: a data model that is semantic, that is meaningful and understood by anyone regardless of his background or expertise.
