Title: Reference and Quantification
Subtitle: The Partee Effect
Edited By: GregoryN.Carlson
Series Title: Lecture Notes
Description:

This volume recasts the influential work of Barbara H. Partee in light of
new studies surrounding the semantics of quantification and reference in
natural language. The papers examine cutting-edge issues in formal
semantics and pragmatics. With topics ranging from the fundamental issues
of compositionality and information structure to the analysis of tense and
aspect, Reference and Quantification is both an excellent discussion of
Partee's work and a thorough overview of developments in current semantics
research.
