Abstract:

The structure and properties of any natural language expression depend
on its component sub-expressions - "resources" - and relations among
them that are sensitive to basic structural properties of order,
grouping, and multiplicity. Resource-sensitivity thus provides a
perspective on linguistic structure that is well-defined and
universally-applicable. The papers in this collection - by J. van
Benthem, P. Jacobson, G. J�ger, G-J. Kruijff, G. Morrill, R. Muskens,
R. Oehrle, and A. Szabolcsi - examine linguistic resources and
resource-sensitivity from a variety of perspectives, including:
 + Modal aspects of categorial type inference; 
 + Multi-dimensional type structures and grammatical architecture;
 + Resource-sensitive aspects of binding and anaphora;
 + Resource-sensitive inference and discourse context. In
 particular, the book contains a number of papers treating
 anaphorically-dependent expressions as functions, whose
 application to an appropriate argument yields a type and an
 interpretation directly integratable with the surrounding
 grammatical structure. To situate this work in a larger setting,
 the book contains two appendices:
 + an introductory guide to resource-sensivity; 
 + notes on the historical background of resource-sensitive
 approaches to binding and anaphora.
