This course examines computational approaches to natural language semantics, including the interpretation of multi-sentence discourse and dialogue. Most of the course will focus on the use of formal methods, yielding formal semantic representations which can be fully integrated with automated reasoning systems. This book is an introduction to the relationship between the morphosyntactic properties of sentences and their associated illocutionary forces or force potentials. It draws on insights from linguistics, philosophy, and sociology, and may be used as a textbook for undergraduate or graduate courses in semantics, pragmatics, and morphosyntax. Mood.

Cambridge Core - Programming Languages and Applied Logic - Formal Semantics and Pragmatics for Natural Language Querying - by James CliffordCited by: He then addresses the more general question of how truth‐theoretic semantics copes with recalcitrant, i.e. non‐extensional, locutions current in natural languages, and addresses Tarski's pessimism of formal frameworks to ‘tame’ them.

Formal semantics is the study of linguistic meaning using precise mathematical characterizations; this chapter introduces formal semantics to scholars and students of natural-language processing. We give simple logical representations of English sentences, and show how meanings are composed in a grammar. We then consider two more advanced issues that arise in processing texts, anaphora and. Montague semantics is a theory of natural language semantics and of its relation with syntax. It was originally developed by the logician Richard Montague (–) and subsequently modified and extended by linguists, philosophers, and logicians.
