In this book Mr. Putman presents, for the first time, his theory of semantics or, in the vernacular, “How language works”. 
Other theories abound. Frege, Russell, Strawson, Donnellan are some of the famous philosophers of the past who's semantic theories are in print. 
       Until now, few of us cared which theory of semantics is correct. We know language works and we use it. 
But the theory presented in this book is different. It has a practical bent. Once you understand Putman's “Distinctive Semantics” from Chapter 1 of this book, you can make use of it whenever you read or write. Just how to make use of it comprises the other four chapters of his book.

Text books,  whether the topic is History or Algebra, are never without ambiguity. That is not the fault of the author, but of language itself. There is a way to remove the ambiguity and thereby make study easier and quicker. The way is to obtain a distinctive outline of the text.

The problem has been that, until the development of a sound method of producing outlines, the outlines were not guaranteed to be less ambiguous than the original text. The discovery that meaning is provided by topics and their properties rather than sentences allowed a consistant and meaningful outline of any topic to be produced. Such outlines have been termed "distinctive outlines."

The writer and reader of distinctive outlines must first understand the technique that creates them.  That understanding is to be gained from the book named below.
