    Michael Franke (forthcoming). The Evolution of Compositionality in Signaling Games. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-23.
    Compositionality is a key design feature of human language: the meaning of complex expressions is, for the most part, systematically constructed from the meanings of its parts and their manner of composition. This paper demonstrates that rudimentary forms of compositional communicative behavior can emerge from a variant of reinforcement learning applied to signaling games. This helps explain how compositionality could have emerged gradually: if unsophisticated agents can evolve prevalent dispositions to communicate compositional-like, there is a direct evolutionary benefit for adaptations (...)

  4. Alex Kruckman & Lawrence Valby (forthcoming). Actions Arising From Intersection and Union. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-23.
    An action is a pair of sets, C and S, and a function \. Rothschild and Yalcin gave a simple axiomatic characterization of those actions arising from set intersection, i.e. for which the elements of C and S can be identified with sets in such a way that elements of S act on elements of C by intersection. We introduce and axiomatically characterize two natural classes of actions which arise from set intersection and union. In the first class, the \-actions, (...)

    José M. Méndez & Gemma Robles (forthcoming). Strengthening Brady’s Paraconsistent 4-Valued Logic BN4 with Truth-Functional Modal Operators. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-27.
    Łukasiewicz presented two different analyses of modal notions by means of many-valued logics: the linearly ordered systems Ł3,...,,..., \; the 4-valued logic Ł he defined in the last years of his career. Unfortunately, all these systems contain “Łukasiewicz type paradoxes”. On the other hand, Brady’s 4-valued logic BN4 is the basic 4-valued bilattice logic. The aim of this paper is to show that BN4 can be strengthened with modal operators following Łukasiewicz’s strategy for defining truth-functional modal logics. The systems we (...)

    Tin Perkov (forthcoming). Natural Deduction for Modal Logic of Judgment Aggregation. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-20.
    We can formalize judgments as logical formulas. Judgment aggregation deals with judgments of several agents, which need to be aggregated to a collective judgment. There are several logical formalizations of judgment aggregation. This paper focuses on a modal formalization which nicely expresses classical properties of judgment aggregation rules and famous results of social choice theory, like Arrow’s impossibility theorem. A natural deduction system for modal logic of judgment aggregation is presented in this paper. The system is sound and complete. As (...)

    Shane Steinert-Threlkeld (forthcoming). Compositional Signaling in a Complex World. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-19.
    Natural languages are compositional in that the meaning of complex expressions depends on those of the parts and how they are put together. Here, I ask the following question: why are languages compositional? I answer this question by extending Lewis–Skyrms signaling games with a rudimentary form of compositional signaling and exploring simple reinforcement learning therein. As it turns out: in complex worlds, having compositional signaling helps simple agents learn to communicate. I am also able to show that learning the meaning (...)

    Shane Steinert-Threlkeld (forthcoming). Some Properties of Iterated Languages. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-23.
    A special kind of substitution on languages called iteration is presented and studied. These languages arise in the application of semantic automata to iterations of generalized quantifiers. We show that each of the star-free, regular, and deterministic context-free languages are closed under iteration and that it is decidable whether a given regular or determinstic context-free language is an iteration of two such languages. This result can be read as saying that the van Benthem/Keenan ‘Frege Boundary’ is decidable for large subclasses (...)

    Bartosz Więckowski (forthcoming). Subatomic Natural Deduction for a Naturalistic First-Order Language with Non-Primitive Identity. Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-54.
    A first-order language with a defined identity predicate is proposed whose apparatus for atomic predication is sensitive to grammatical categories of natural language. Subatomic natural deduction systems are defined for this naturalistic first-order language. These systems contain subatomic systems which govern the inferential relations which obtain between naturalistic atomic sentences and between their possibly composite components. As a main result it is shown that normal derivations in the defined systems enjoy the subexpression property which subsumes the subformula property with respect (...)
