Language Turned on Itself: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Metalinguistic Discourse

OUP Oxford (2007)
This is the first book devoted to the question of how language can be used to talk about language. Cappelen and Lepore examine the semantics, the pragmatics, and the syntax of linguistic devices that can be used in this way, and present a new account of our use of quotation in a variety of different contexts
