Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course provides an introduction to the theory of grammar from the formal linguistics perspective with a focus on semantics. The topics of the course include the philosophical and conceptual underpinnings of formal theorizing about semantics and of semantics as part of grammar, truth conditions and compositionality, basics of propositional and predicate logics and typed lambda calculus for modelling natural language meaning composition, as well as an overview of particular topics in natural language semantics and the formal approach to them: predicate-argument composition, nominal modifiers and their types (intersective, subsective, non-intersective and non-subsective), possessive constructions, quantifiers, presupposition, anaphora, dynamic semantics. Prerequisites: attended the course "semantics" or the course "logic" (bachelor's degree).
