Abstract:

This volume on the semantic complexity of natural language explores the
question why some sentences are more difficult than others. While doing so, it
lays the groundwork for extending semantic theory with computational and
cognitive aspects by combining linguistics and logic with computations and
cognition.

Quantifier expressions occur whenever we describe the world and communicate
about it. Generalized quantifier theory is therefore one of the basic tools of
linguistics today, studying the possible meanings and the inferential power of
quantifier expressions by logical means. The classic version was developed in
the 1980s, at the interface of linguistics, mathematics and philosophy. Before
this volume, advances in "classic" generalized quantifier theory mainly
focused on logical questions and their applications to linguistics, this
volume adds a computational component, the third pillar of language use and
logical activity. This book is essential reading for researchers in
linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science, logic, AI, and computer science.
