They reflect the current move of formal semantics from short multisentential texts towards structured discourses and dialogues, accounting for more and more phenomena at the semantics-pragmatics interface (such as subtleties of anaphora and presupposition, the role of temporal connectives in discourse or the establishment of common references.

In this paper, I argue that the temporal connective prima (‘before’) is a comparative adverb. The argument is based on a number of grammatical facts from Italian, showing that there is.

Logic and conversation. The requirements of temporal connectives regarding the aspect of the clauses they can combine with, which is a phenomenon in line with the one exemplified in (1), form a convincing case in favour of the two-level approach to semantics.

"Semantic and Pragmatic Issues in Discourse and Dialogue" published on 12 Nov by Brill. The book covers most of the topics needed for an introduction to logic class. In sections a glimpse into metalogic is offered.

The book does not suggest nevertheless any connection to informal logic (other textbooks in logic abound in this area). It would be useful to relate logic to critical thinking. Content Accuracy rating: 5 The book is. temporal connectives based on semantic and pragmatic differences at the level of entailment, explicature, and implicature and makes a general proposal.

So, on the coercion analysis, "begin" coerces "a book" from an entity to an event involving that entity, allowing the sentence to be interpreted to mean, e.g., "I began to read a book," or "I began to write a book." An example of aspectual coercion involving temporal connectives is "Let's leave after dessert" (Pustejovsky ).

A clausal normal form for LTL First proposed by Michael Fisher; useful in proof by temporal resolution:» ^ 2 ^ i (i) ’i)» - purely propositional i - conjunctions of possibly negated propositional variables ’i - disjunctions of p, –p and 3p. Deflnition 3 Given vocabularies L and L0, L µ L0, model ¾0 for L0 extends model ¾ for L if ¾0(i) \ L = ¾(i) for all i.

This book is a monograph on the topic of Proof-Theoretic Semantics, a theory of meaning constituting an alternative to the more traditional Model-Theoretic Semantics. The latter regards meaning as truth-conditions (in arbitrary models), the former regards meaning as canonical derivability conditions in a meaning-conferring natural-deduction.

The PDiT annotation contains both inter- and intra-sentential discourse relations. Each relation is also assigned a semantic type/sense. The set of semantic relations (the complete list of these can be found in Table 1) is inspired by the Penn Discourse Treebank sense hierarchy (Prasad et al., ) and by the syntactico-semantic labels used for the representation of compound sentences on.

Introduction. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to the semantical properties of before, after, and related elements. In particular, we shall raise the question whether the occurrence of negative polarity items in before-clauses can be described in terms of the semantic structure of the connective.

Semantics of connectives guides referential expectations in discourse: an eye-tracking study of Dutch and Russian [ Article ] Authors: Mak, Willem Marinus ; [ Tribušinina, Elena S.

] Tribushinina, Elena ; Andreiushina, Elizaveta. Tense, temporal adverbs, and temporal connectives provide information about when events described in English sentences occur. To extract this temporal information from a sentence, it must be parsed into a semantic representation which captures the meaning of tense, temporal adverbs, and temporal connectives.

The book contains three parts. The first part shows how different formal models can be applied to the analysis of such diverse problems as the syntax, semantics and pragmatics of tense, aspect and deictic expressions, syntax and pragmatics of quantifiers and semantics and pragmatics of connectives.

In this paper, we aim to enhance our understanding about the processing of implicit and explicit temporal chronological relations by investigating the roles of temporal connectives and verbal tenses, separately and in interaction.

In particular, we investigate how two temporal connectives (ensuite and puis, both meaning ‘then’) and two verbal tenses expressing past time (the simple and.

1) Interclausal Semantic Relations & IRH in English (Valin, Figure ). 1. Introduction. In order to construct a coherent mental representation of the events described in complex sentences, listeners must be able to interpret connectives to establish the semantic relationship (e.g., temporality – after, when etc., causality – because, since, concession – although, even if etc.) between the main- and the subordinate clause.

Course: LIN Temporal Semantics Term: Spring Instructor:Bohnemeyer Text: Primary readings on reserve Overview: This course provides an introduction to the analysis of temporal reference in natural languages. Core areas to be covered include lexical and viewpoint aspect, absolute and relative tense, time adverbials, and temporal relations in discourse (or “temporal anaphora”.

certain temporal relation holds between those two events, much like the temporal connectives before and after (BonomiViknera.o.). In this paper, we reconcile the syntactic nature and the semantic properties of temporal when-clauses by proposing a semantic analysis that crucially relies on treating them as free relatives.

Also, we show. We show that these analyses make a number of wrong predictions, and should be abandoned. Our account hinges on the idea that hasta licenses a temporal phase previous to the telic predicate, somehow similar to the one that in PP complements (in one hour) create in English and many other languages in similar structures.

Connective comprehension task. Comprehension of before and after was measured using a touch-screen comprehension task. There were 32 sentences that reported events that are arbitrarily related (e.g., He put on the socks, before he ate the burger; see Blything et al., ).These 32 two-clause sequences were counterbalanced across four lists so that they each represented one of four sentence.Lexical Semantics: Hyponyms & Hypernyms •Hyponym: word x is a hyponym of word y if the sets of referents of x is always in the set of referents of y •e.g.

the set of poodles is always in the set of dogs •Hypernym: the converse of hyponym •above, ‘dogs’ = hypernym, ‘poodles’ = hyponym.relativizes the interpretation of expressions to times to account for verbal tense, time adverbials, and temporal connectives, and introduces possible worlds to modal intensions, modal adverbs, and modal auxiliaries.
