Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a collection of papers offering a broad account of many interesting topics in the study of Logic, Language and Information. In particular, the collection addresses two important themes: how to handle quantification in natural language, and how to isolate genuine `logics of information'. After the editor's introduction, which presents an overview of the interdisciplinary field, the collection begins with a group of fairly philosophical papers which address current issues in formal semantics from a logical perspective. It then moves on to papers which straddle the border between formal semantics and logic, and finishes with purely logical papers focusing on some non-classical logics. This book will be of interest to those working in logic, philosophy, linguistics, computer science and artificial intelligence.
