|Abstract||In this tutorial, the meaning of natural language is analysed along the lines proposed by Gottlob Frege and Richard Montague. In building meaning representations, we assume that the meaning of a complex expression derives from the meanings of its components. Typed logic is a convenient tool to make this process of composition explicit. Typed logic allows for the building of semantic representations for formal languages and fragments of natural language in a compositional way. The tutorial ends with the discussion of an example fragment, implemented in the functional programming language Haskell Haskell Team; Jones..|
