LIBRARY RESEARCH1. Ramsay, Alan. 1990.
. London: Pitman
The book describes about several more particular senses of semantics that can beidentified:in linguistics,mathematics and computer science, and in logic.In linguistics,  semantics is a sub field of linguisticsthat is traditionally defined as the study of meaningof  (parts of) words, phrases, sentences, and texts. Inmathematics and computer science,  semantics also used as a term. Last, in logic, semantics most influentially beingAlfred Tarski's ideas inmodel theoryand hissemantic theory of truth.Also,inferential role  semanticshas its roots in the work of Gerhard Gentzenonproof theoryandproof-theoretic  semantics. One of the most popular alternatives to the standard model theoretic semanticsistruth-value semantics.

Semantik Pengantar Studi Tentang Makna
.Bandung: Sinar Baru Algensindo.
The book tells about the study of language which emphasizes meaning aspect. Thereis the propinquity of relationship between language and meaning, so every feature andevery type of language behavior could influence the semantics feature. This book alsoexamines various meaning studies that are appropriate with a variety of meaningexistence level, the problem about a variety a meaning in application; the relationshipbetween language and mind; language as a formal structure of reality; and the problems of language logic.
3. Sense and Reference
The book elaborates that according to Frege, sense and reference are two aspects of the
of a linguistic expression. The reference of an expression is simply the objectthat the expression refers to. The sense of an expression, more controversially, is whatprovides the cognitive significance of the expression. The reference (or referent) of aproper name is the object it means or indicates. The sense of a proper name is whatever meaning it has, when there is no object to be indicated. Frege justifies the distinction in anumber of ways.1.Sense is something possessed by a name, whether or not it has a reference.
2.Sense is wholly semantic. Reference by contrast, though semantic, is intimately(and puzzlingly) connected with the named object3.The sense of different names is different, even when their reference is the same

Meaning and Truth Essential Reading in Modern Semantic 
. New York: Paragon Press.
The truth of utterance depends just upon their meaning and the fit of those meaningto the world are the big issue discussed o this book. Meaning and truth are the great of semantic ideas saying something is to convey meaning. In another side, utterance at leastassertion have principal function of the expression of belief which must be seen as another central concept of semantic.

Semantics, Culture, and Cognition
. Australia: HowardUniversity
.Investigating cultures from a universal, language-independent perspective, thisbook rejects analytical tools derived from the English language and Anglo culture andproposes instead a "natural semantic metalanguage" formulated in English words butbased on lexical universals. The outcome of two and a half decades of research, themetalanguage is made up of universal semantic primitives in terms of which all meanings--including the most culture-specific ones--can be described and compared in a precise andilluminating way. Integrating insights from linguistics, cultural anthropology, and cognitivepsychology, and written in simple, non-technical language,
