Title: Formal Semantics of Natural Language
Written By: Edward L. Keenan
Description:

A volume of studies in natural language semantics which brings together
work by philosophers, logicians and linguists. The main topics treated are:
quantification and reference in natural language; the relations between
formal logic, programming languages and natural language; pragmatics and
discourse meaning; surface syntax and logical meaning. The volume derives
from a colloquium organised in 1973 by the Kings College Research Centre,
Cambridge and the papers have been edited for publication by Professor
Keenan. It is hoped that the collection will make available some of the
best work in this fast-moving field and will stimulate further progress by
juxtaposing the different approaches and interests represented here.
