The dynamics of tense under attitudes: anaphoricity and de se interpretation in the backward shifted past
In Hattori et al (ed.), New Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence. Springer (2009)
|Abstract||Shows that both anaphoricity and egocentric de se binding play a crucial role in the interpretation of tense in discourse. Uses the English backwards shifted reading of the past tense in a mistaken time scenario to bring out the tension between these two features. Provides a suitable representational framework for the observed clash in the form of an extension of DRT in which updates of the common ground are accompanied by updates of each relevant agent's complex attitudinal state.|
