Foundations of Intensional Semantics free pdf This book provides a systematic study of three foundational issues in the semantics of natural language that have been relatively neglected in the past few decades. * focuses on the formal characterization of intensions, the nature of an adequate type system for natural language semantics, and the formal power of the semantic representation language * proposes a theory that offers a promising framework for developing a computational semantic system sufficiently expressive to capture the properties of natural language meaning while remaining computationally tractable * written by two leading researchers and of interest to students and researchers in formal semantics, computational linguistics, logic, artificial intelligence, and the philosophy of language

    This book introduces formal semantics techniques for a natural language processing audience. Methods discussed involve: (i) the denotational techniques used in model-theoretic semantics. which make it possible to determine whether a linguistic expression is true or false with respect to some model of the way things happen to be- and (ii) stages of interpretation..
