Abstract:

This book provides a systematic study of three foundational issues in the
semantics of natural language that have been relatively neglected in the
past few decades. It focuses on the formal characterization of intensions,
the nature of an adequate type system for natural language semantics, and
the formal power of the semantic representation language. The book proposes
a theory that offers a promising framework for developing a computational
semantic system sufficiently expressive to capture the properties of
natural language meaning while remaining computationally tractable.

It is written by two leading researchers and of interest to students and
researchers in formal semantics, computational linguistics, logic,
artificial intelligence, and the philosophy of language.

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
                            Semantics

Written In: English (ENG )
