It presents new and promising views of the count/plural/mass distinction, supporting them through extensive discussions of many phenomena.

The basic idea - in singling out special entities which play a major role in accounting for count- and plural-like behaviour, according to contextually controllable integrity conditions - is challenging and with far-reaching.

In my book Parts and Wholes in Semantics, I took as point of departure the view that definite plurals (such as the students) and definite mass terms (such as the wood) stand for entities, pluralities and quantities respectively, just as definite singular count terms like the house stand for objects.

However, unlike the objects described by. Moltmann provides a unified account of a broad range of English and cross linguistic data involving expressions of the notions of "part" and "whole". She presents a new theory of part structures in which the notion of an integrated whole plays a fundamental role, and in which the part structure of an entity may vary across different situations, perspectives, and dimensions.

The book presents a great range of empirical generalizations involving plurals, mass nouns, adnominal and adverbial modifiers such as 'whole', 'together', and 'alone', nominal and adverbial quanitfiers ranging over parts, and expressions of completion such as 'completely' and 'partly'.Author: Friederike Moltmann.

We will look at two types of part-part-whole word problems: Missing Whole or Missing Part. The following diagrams show the Part-Part-Whole Models to find the Missing Whole or Missing Part.

The empirical study of word meanings and sentence meanings in existing languages is a branch of linguistics; the abstract study of meaning in relation to language or symbolic logic systems is a branch of philosophy.

Distinctive characteristics of this approach (see also Pagin, Chapter 3) have been truth conditions as a central part of meaning; (usually) a model-theoretic conception of semantics; and the methodological centrality of the Principle Parts and wholes in semantics book Compositionality: “The meaning of a whole is a function of the meanings of its parts and their mode of.

Semantics is the study of sentence meaning and word meaning. To illustrate this, the interpretation of () will be discussed in terms of three distinguishable stages. The first stage is a semantic one: literal meaning. The others are two kinds of pragmatic interpretation: explica- ture and implicature.

Representing part-whole relations is a very common issue for those developing ontologies for the Semantic Web.

OWL does not provide any built-in primitives for part-whole relations (as it does for the subclass relation), but contains sufficient expressive power to capture most, but not all, of the common cases. yReasons for thhese chhanges: yAccidental: tanks are called as they are because of a security diidecision in Fi tFirst WldWorld War to dideceive the Germans into thinking that water‐tanks were being dispatched.

Abstract objects have been a central topic in philosophy since antiquity. Philosophers have defended various views about abstract objects by appealing to metaphysical considerations, considerations regarding mathematics or science, and, not infrequently, intuitions about natural language. This book pursues the question of how and whether natural language allows for reference to abstract.

Objects, parts, holes, boundaries, and places are the stuff of our world. Philosophers and mathmaticians have dealt with parts of this spatial structure, using mereology or topology.

With some new impetus from computer science, this well-argued and original book proposes a logical view on the whole. Let us start with semantics as it is standardly pursued. In a standard seman-tics for a context-sensitive language (such as Kaplan ), each sentence of the language is assigned a character, which is a function from possible contexts of utterance to contents.

It is simple, easy to use, and it can be used for targeting tons of different language targets. It is used widely throughout the UK and after spending a training day with Alison Bryan, I could not believe that I had never heard of it before.

"Science and Sanity" is perhaps the book that has had the most influence on my thinking. Korzybski's insight into the importance of language/semantics/reasoning is without equal. That said, it is the one of the most difficult-to-read books I have ever run across. This stems from two principle problems/5.

Lexical Semantic Relations In this section, we consider a more global level of lexical organization. Lexical semantics relations play an essential role in lexical semantics and intervene at many levels in natural language comprehension and production.

They are also a central element in the organization of lexical semantics knowledge bases. The book is, as the title suggests, about a semantic analysis of language, and particularly the word "Good" as it is used in English.

Composition. The book is written in a large number of numbered paragraphs to be exact. It also includes a short preface. The writing style is thus similar to Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. The. Friederike Moltmann is senior researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris.

Basal reader — A kind of book that is used to teach reading. It is based on an approach in which words are used as a whole. The words are used over and over in each succeeding lesson.

Montague's claim, as represented in the title of one of his papers, English as a Formal Language, is that English can be treated in a natural way within the logical tradition in syntax and is held that an essential part of the semantic interpretation of any sentence is a specification.

Although obviously a central concern of linguistics, the semantic behaviour of words has been unduly neglected in the current literature, which has tended to emphasize sentential semantics and its relation to formal systems of logic. In this textbook D.

Howard Gregory: Semantics. Language Workbooks. London: Routledge, 92 pp. [pounds sterling]. This introduction to semantics appears in the series "Language Workbooks" and follows the general idea of this series: the nine short chapters informally present central ideas and key concepts of semantic theory.

The book draws heavily on crosslinguistic research, and presents in-depth case studies of the mass/count distinction and counting and measuring in a number of typologically unrelated languages. It also includes chapters on classifiers, constructions and adjectival uses of measure by: This book is based on my lectures in advanced and in-termediate logic courses at Yale University {, parts: proof theory and formal semantics.2 In proof the-ory, the logical systems are treated as abstract math- as a whole and for all relevant pur poses, by a single known formal language no longer seems File Size: 1MB.
