In a number of languages, scattered across the world, every statement must contain a specification of the type of evidence on which it is based - whether the speaker saw it, or heard it, or inferred it from indirect evidence, or learnt it from somebody else. This is a very... more...

This book considers important aspects of the syntax of sentences and their relation to the extra-sentential context. The relation between a sentence and the context is frequently reckoned to be in some sense <"syntax-free>", in that it is not syntactically represented but introduced post-syntactically by semantic rules of interpretation.... more...

This book introduces the most important problems of reference and considers the solutions that have been proposed to explain them. Reference is at the centre of debate among linguists and philosophers and, as Barbara Abbott shows, this has been the case for centuries. She begins by examining the basic issue of how far reference is a two place (words-world)... more...

Linking - how semantic arguments map to the syntax - is one of the challenges for theories of the syntax-semantics interface. This title explores the hypothesis that the positions of syntactic arguments are strictly determined by lexical argument geometry. It provides a simple and consistent account of linking. more...
