The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.
The importance of Henk Zeevat's new monograph cannot be overstated. [...] I recommend it to anyone who combines interests in language, logic, and computation [...]. David Beaver, University of Texas at Austin
This volume presents an up-to-date account of current trends in intensional logic. Consisting of nine original research papers preceded by a survey of recent developments, the volume highlights recent advances in a number of interdisciplinary areas, including traditional philosophical concerns about correct descriptions and abstract objects; the use of intensional languages as descriptive tools for finite graphs; proof-theoretical considerations; general strategies of `modalizing' calculi usually perceived to be non-modal; and mathematical foundations of intensional logics.
