This volume addresses current issues in the semantics and the
pragmatics of discourse and dialogue. Collected papers aim at
providing insights on different theoretical approaches, all of them in
the dynamic semantics tradition, such as Dynamic Predicate Logic
(DPL), Discourse Representation Theory (DRT), and Segmented Discourse
Representation Theory (SDRT). They reflect the current move of formal
semantics from short multisentential texts towards structured
discourses and dialogues, accounting for more and more phenomena at
the semantics-pragmatics interface (e.g., subtleties of anaphora and
presupposition, the role of temporal connectives in discourse or the
establishment of common references in dialogue).
