Abstract:

Formal Pragmatics addresses issues that are on the borderline of the
semantics and pragmatics of natural language, from the point of view
of a model-theoretic semanticist. This up-to-date resource covers a
substantial body of formal work on linguistic phenomena, and presents
the way the semantics-pragmatics interface has come to be viewed
today.

-Introduces Discourse Representation Theory and File Change Semantics,
with their formal representation of context and context change.

-Covers presupposition, including the nature and status of
presuppositions as well as presupposition projection.

-Deals with focus, its prosodic manifestation, and the model-theoretic
analysis of its meaning and function.

This volume, which serves as a textbook, as well as a reference or
research book, offers a detailed discussion of key issues and clearly
explains important, cutting-edge research.
