This chapter offers a brief introduction to the core ideas and gives some notation concerning truth conditional semantics. It aims to revive earlier experiences with the field and ease later contact with semantic representations of the items under investigation. Particular emphasis is laid on the explicitness of the paradigm which encourages to specify literal contents of words, the modes of semantic composition, presuppositions, implicatures and default inferences, indexical anchors of utterances, and other conceptual parameters that may influence the use and interpretation of language.

Keywords:   concepts, semantic composition, functional words, lexical words, presupposition, implicatures
