  1. Heather Burnett (forthcoming). Comparison Across Domains in Delineation Semantics. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-33.
    This paper presents a new logical analysis of quantity comparatives within the Delineation Semantics approach to gradability and comparison among many others. Along with the Degree Semantics framework Delineation Semantics is one of the dominant logical frameworks for analyzing the meaning of gradable constituents of the adjectival syntactic category; however, there has been very little work done investigating the application of this framework to the analysis of gradability outside the adjectival domain. This state of affairs distinguishes the Delineation Semantics framework (...)

  4. Anaïs Cadilhac, Nicholas Asher, Alex Lascarides & Farah Benamara (forthcoming). Preference Change. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-22.
    Most models of rational action assume that all possible states and actions are pre-defined and that preferences change only when beliefs do. But several decision and game problems lack these features, calling for a dynamic model of preferences: preferences can change when unforeseen possibilities come to light or when there is no specifiable or measurable change in belief. We propose a formally precise dynamic model of preferences that extends an existing static model. Our axioms for updating preferences preserve consistency while (...)

  5. Arnaud Durand, Johannes Ebbing, Juha Kontinen & Heribert Vollmer (forthcoming). Dependence Logic with a Majority Quantifier. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-17.
    We study the extension of dependence logic \ by a majority quantifier \ over finite structures. We show that the resulting logic is equi-expressive with the extension of second-order logic by second-order majority quantifiers of all arities. Our results imply that, from the point of view of descriptive complexity theory, \\) captures the complexity class counting hierarchy. We also obtain characterizations of the individual levels of the counting hierarchy by fragments of \\).

  6. Martin Kaså (forthcoming). A Logic for Trial and Error Classifiers. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-16.
    Trial and error classifiers, corresponding to concepts which change their extensions over time, are introduced and briefly philosophically motivated. A fragment of the language of classical first-order logic is given a new semantics, using \-sequences of classical models, in order to interpret the basic predicates as classifiers of this kind. It turns out that we can use a natural deduction proof system which differs from classical logic only in the conditions for application of existential elimination. Soundness and completeness theorems are (...)

  8. Vít Punčochář (forthcoming). Weak Negation in Inquisitive Semantics. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-33.
    This paper introduces and explores a conservative extension of inquisitive logic. In particular, weak negation is added to the standard propositional language of inquisitive semantics, and it is shown that, although we lose some general semantic properties of the original framework, such an enrichment enables us to model some previously inexpressible speech acts such as weak denial and ‘might’-assertions. As a result, a new modal logic emerges. For this logic, a Fitch-style system of natural deduction is formulated. The main result (...)
