Title: Resource-Sensitivity, Binding and Anaphora
Edited By: Geert-Jan M. Kruijff
Richard T. Oehrle
URL: http://www.wkap.nl/prod/b/1-4020-1691-3
Series Title: Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy 80
Description:

The structure and properties of any natural language expression depend on its component sub-expressions – "resources" – and relations among them that are sensitive to basic structural properties of order, grouping, and multiplicity. Resource-sensitivity thus provides a perspective on linguistic structure that is well-defined and universally-applicable. The papers in this collection – by J. van Benthem, P. Jacobson, G. Jäger, G-J. Kruijff, G. Morrill, R. Muskens, R. Oehrle, and A. Szabolcsi – examine linguistic resources and resource-sensitivity from a variety of perspectives, including: + Modal aspects of categorial type inference; + Multi-dimensional type structures and grammatical architecture; + Resource-sensitive aspects of binding and anaphora; + Resource-sensitive inference and discourse context. In particular, the book contains a number of papers treating anaphorically-dependent expressions as functions, whose application to an appropriate argument yields a type and an interpretation directly integratable with the surrounding grammatical structure. To situate this work in a larger setting, the book contains two appendices: + an introductory guide to resource-sensivity; + notes on the historical background of resource-sensitive approaches to binding and anaphora.
