Title: Formale Semantik und natürliche Sprache [Formal Semantics and Natural Language]
Written By: Horst Lohnstein
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110209112-2
Series Title: de Gruyter Studium
Description:

Modern linguistics makes increasing use of abstract theories to describe the
human capacity for language. This textbook provides a clear overview of the
current theoretical concepts and analytical methods; in addition, it explains the
technical foundations of formal semantics. It is structured as an aid to teaching
and learning, with large numbers of examples and exercises, and thus it is
suitable for use by students of language and linguistics not only for self-study
but also as a guide for taught courses.
