NEW BOOK FROM BLACKWELL PUBLISHING

Formal Semantics: The Essential Readings
Paul Portner, Georgetown University; and 
Barbara H. Partee, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

The formal semantics approach to the study of natural language
semantics was developed through active dialogue between linguistically
minded philosophers and philosophically minded linguists and has
become increasingly integrated into theoretical linguistics. Formal
Semantics: The Essential Readings is a collection of seminal papers
that have shaped the field of formal semantics in linguistics.

The book covers key central themes and includes both an editorial
introduction and extensive references. Formal Semantics: The Essential
Readings is a vital resource for students and scholars of semantics
and the philosophy of language.
