Abstract:

This book provides a state-of-the-art introduction to categorial grammar, atype of formal grammar which analyses expressions as functions or accordingto a function-argument relationship. The book's focus is on linguistic,computational, and psycholinguistic aspects of logical categorial grammar,i.e. enriched Lambek Calculus. Glyn Morrill opens with the history andnotation of Lambek Calculus and its application to syntax, semantics, andprocessing. Successive chapters extend the grammar to a number ofsignificant syntactic and semantic properties of natural language. Thefinal part applies Morrill's account to several current issues inprocessing and parsing, considered from both a psychological and acomputational perspective. The book offers a rigorous and thoughtful studyof one of the main lines of research in the formal and mathematical theoryof grammar, and will be suitable for students of linguistics and cognitivescience from advanced undergraduate level upwards.
