Denial and correction in layered drt

Abstract
The central characteristic of denials is that they perform a non-monotonic correction operation on discourse structure.<span class='Hi'></span> A second characteristic is that they may be used to object to various kinds of information including presuppositions and implicatures.<span class='Hi'></span> In this paper we first use standard DRT to capture these features,<span class='Hi'></span> implement an earlier proposal of van der Sandt <span class='Hi'></span>(1991)<span class='Hi'></span> in DRT and point out a shortcoming of that approach.<span class='Hi'></span> We then adopt Layered DRT.<span class='Hi'></span> LDRT is an extension of standard DRT designed to represent and interpret different types of information conveyed in a conversation by distributing them over separate layers of the same LDRS.<span class='Hi'></span> We will then show how LDRT allows us to solve the problems of the classic monostratal system.<span class='Hi'></span> The resulting system makes use of a di-<span class='Hi'></span> rected reverse anaphora mechanism to locate,<span class='Hi'></span> remove and negate the material objected to.
