This book is a collective volume that reports the state of the art in the
applications of type theory to linguistic semantics. The volume fills a 20
year gap from the last published book on the issue and aspires to bring
researchers closer to cutting edge alternatives in formal semantics
research. It consists of unpublished work by some key researchers on
various issues related to the type theoretical study of formal semantics and
further exemplifies the advantages of using modern type theoretical
approaches to linguistic semantics. Themes that are covered include
modern developments of type theories in formal semantics, foundational
issues in linguistic semantics like anaphora, modality and plurals,
innovational interdisciplinary research like the introduction of probability
theory to type theories as well as computational implementations of type
theoretical approaches. This volume will be of great interest to formal
semanticists that are looking for alternative ways to study linguistic
semantics, but will also be of interest to theoretical computer scientists
and mathematicians that are interested in the applications of type theory.
