  1. Hans Smessaert & Alice G. B. Ter Meulen (2004). Temporal Reasoning with Aspectual Adverbs. Linguistics and Philosophy 27 (2):209-261.
    Validity of dynamic temporal reasoning is semantically characterized for English and Dutch aspectual adverbs in Discourse Representation Theory. This dynamic perspective determines how the content needs to be revised and what information is preserved across updates, when the order of premises is considered relevant. Resetting contextual parameters relies on modelling the basic aspectual polarity transitions and temporal reasoning extensionally. For intensional aspectual adverbials the speaker's attitudes regarding past alternatives to and possible continuations of the current state come into play. Additional (...)

  6. Alice G. B. ter Meulen (1998). Semantic Realism, Rigid Designation, and Dynamic Semantics. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):85-86.
    Semantic realism fits Millikan's account of kind terms in its focus on information-theoretic abilities and strategic ways of gathering information in human communication. Instead of the traditional logical necessity, we should interpret rigid designation in a dynamic semantics as a legislative act to constrain possible ways in which our belief may change.
