Title: Semantic and Pragmatic Issues in Discourse and Dialogue: Experimenting with Current Dynamic Theories
Edited By: Myriam Bras
Laure Vieu
URL: http://www.elsevier.com/inca/publications/store/6/2/2/5/0/0/index.htt
Description:

This volume addresses current issues in the semantics and the pragmatics of discourse and dialogue. Collected papers aim at providing insights on different theoretical approaches, all of them in the dynamic semantics tradition, such as Dynamic Predicate Logic (DPL), Discourse Representation Theory (DRT), and Segmented Discourse
Representation Theory (SDRT). They reflect the current move of formal semantics from short multisentential texts towards structured discourses and dialogues, accounting for more and more phenomena at the semantics-pragmatics interface (e.g., subtleties of anaphora and presupposition, the role of temporal connectives in discourse or the establishment of common references in dialogue).
