By Boban Arsenijević, Berit Gehrke, Rafael Marín

This certain, perceptive addition to the linguistics literature analyzes the semantic elements of occasion predicates, exploring their fine-grained components in addition to their organisation in linguistic processing. The papers transcend natural semantics to contemplate their various impacts of occasion predicates on argument constitution, point, scalarity, and occasion structure.

The quantity indicates how advances within the linguistic concept of occasion predicates, that have spawned Davidsonian and neo-Davidsonian notions of occasion arguments, as well as ‘event constitution’ frameworks and mereological versions for the eventuality area, have sidelined examine on particular units of entailments that help a typology of occasion predicates. Addressing this imbalance within the literature, the paintings additionally provides facts indicating a extra advanced position for scalar constructions than at present assumed. it is going to improve the paintings of semanticists, psycholinguists, and syntacticians with a decompositional method of verb word structure.

It's a proven fact that demanding, element and modality jointly shape the most habitual and lively parts of study in modern syntax and semantics, in addition to in different disciplines of linguistics. a good number of syntactic and semantic phenomena are involved by way of the temporal-aspectual-modal point of illustration: information regarding time, element and modality is a part of almost all sentences; inflexion is sort of broadly regarded as the middle of syntactic projections. due to this very the most important state of affairs and function within the sentence constitution, temporal-aspectual and modal info issues almost any a part of the sentence and this data has scope over the complete characterization of the eventuality denoted by way of the sentence.

Download Procedural Semantics for Hyperintensional Logic: Foundations by Marie Duží PDF

By Marie Duží

July 2011 -- The Council of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic has offered Procedural Semantics for Hyperintensional Logic with its prestigiousaward for notable result of significant medical importance.


This quantity units out the principles of obvious Intensional common sense, including many functions to a variety of themes together with formal semantics, philosophy of language, and philosophical common sense. detailed cognizance is dedicated to a few issues that tend to be handled merely in passing. They comprise, inter alia, notional attitudes, figuring out even if, ideas (understood conscientiously and non-mentalistically),
attitudes de re, and anaphora in hyperintensional contexts.

The total programme is determined out and put in old and systematic context. The programme is composed in devising one overarching semantic idea for every type of discourse, no matter if colloquial, medical, mathematical or logical. The semantic idea is a procedural one, in line with which experience is an summary, pre-linguistic method detailing what operations to use to what procedural ingredients to reach on the product (if any) of the technique. Such techniques are conscientiously outlined as so-called buildings dwelling in a platonic realm. The semantics is adapted to the toughest case, as constituted by way of hyperintensional contexts, and generalized from there to intensional and extensional contexts.

This anti-contextualist and completely compositional semantics is, to the simplest of our wisdom, the single one who offers with all types of context in a special and systematic demeanour. the 3 authors have striven to put in writing an available examine of obvious Intensional good judgment that could be learn via researchers and complex scholars of good judgment, semantics, linguistics, informatics, computing device technology, and kindred disciplines.
