This book brings together classic and recent papers in the
philosophical and linguistic analysis of fuzzy grammar, gradience in
meaning, word classes, and syntax. Issues such as how many grains make
a heap, when a puddle becomes a pond, and so forth, have occupied
thinkers since Aristotle and over the last two decades been the
subject of increasing interest among linguists as well as in fields
such as artificial intelligence and computational linguistics. The
work is designed to be of use to students in all these fields. It has
a substantial introduction, is divided into thematic parts, contains
annotated sections of further reading, and is fully indexed.

Lingfield(s):	Philosophy of Language 

Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
