It is a commonplace to say that the meaning of text is more than the
conjunction of the meaning of its constituents. But what are the rules
governing its interpretation, and what are the constraints that define
well-formed discourse? Answers to these questions can be given from various
perspectives. In this edited volume, leading scientists in the field
investigate these questions from structural, cognitive, and computational
perspectives. The last decades have seen the development of numerous formal
frameworks in which the structure of discourse can be analysed, the most
important of them being the Linguistic Discourse Model, Rhetorical
Structure Theory and Segmented Discourse Representation Theory. This volume
contains an introduction to these frameworks and the fundamental topics in
research about discourse constraints. Thus it should be accessible to
specialists in the field as well as advanced graduate students and
researchers from neighbouring areas. The volume is of interest to discourse
linguists, psycholinguists, cognitive scientists, and computational linguists.
