Distinguishing between discourse referents and thematic arguments, the
analysis of incorporation proposed in this book accounts for the
relationship between morphological and semantic number, the contrasts
between incorporated singulars and incorporated plurals, and various
`shades' of discourse transparency. The framework of Discourse
Representation Theory used is a theory well-suited for connecting
sentence level and discourse level semantics. The analysis presented
in the Semantics of Incorporation has important consequences for a
cross-linguistic theory of anaphora. Linguists and logicians
interested in discourse structure, cross-linguistic semantics, and the
relationship between morpho-syntax and meaning will find this an
engaging and innovative work.
