Download Tense, attitudes, and scope by T. Ogihara PDF

By T. Ogihara

Stressful, Attitudes, and Scope is a model-theoretic inquiry into the semantics of demanding in normal language. The e-book provides the view that the semantic contribution of stressful is made in terms of structurally better expressions (the `relative demanding theory') and argues opposed to the view that tenses are all indexicals. this concept is officially encoded as a de se research of attitudes, initially proposed through Lewis, coupled with a sequence-of-tense rule posited for English. An auxiliary notion is made to account for a few unparalleled situations (e.g. so-called double-access sentences), which invokes de re attitudes approximately temporal entities (states or intervals). due to the fact the proposed account assumes that the translation of annoying is structure-dependent, it additionally effectively predicts scope interactions among tenses and NPs. annoying, Attitudes, and Scope is meant for students and graduate scholars in formal semantics, syntax-semantics interface, philosophy of language and eastern linguistics.
