1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
Researchers in describing Semantics, examine what signs mean in particular languages. The aim, for instance, to identify what constitutes nouns or noun phrases and verbs or verb phrases. For some languages such as English, this is done with subject predicate analysis. For some other languages without clear-cut distinctions between nouns, verb and prepositions, it is possible what the signs mean by analyzing the structure are called propositions. In such analysis a sign is seen as an operator that combines with one or more arguments (also sign)- often nominal arguments (noun phrases)- or relates nominal arguments to other elements in the expression (such as prepositional phrases or adverbial phrases) (Encarta, 2009).
