  1. Iceberg Semantics For Count Nouns And Mass Nouns: Classifiers, Measures and Portions.Fred Landman - 2016 - The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication 11.
    The background for this paper is the framework of Boolean semantics for mass and count nouns, and singular and plural count nouns, as developed from the work of Godehard Link in Link 1983. Link-style Boolean semantics for nouns analyzes the oppositions mass-count and singular-plural in terms of the notion of atomicity: counting is in terms of singular objects, which are taken to be atoms. Consequently, Link bases his semantics on two separate Boolean domains: a non-atomic mass domain and an atomic (...)

    The standard view of "believes" and other propositional attitude verbs is that such verbs express relations between agents and propositions. A sentence of the form “S believes that p” is true just in case S stands in the belief-relation to the proposition that p; this proposition is the referent of the complement clause "that p." On this view, we would expect the clausal complements of propositional attitude verbs to be freely intersubstitutable with their corresponding proposition descriptions—e.g., "the proposition that p"—as (...)

  • Counting, Measuring And The Semantics Of Classifiers.Susan Rothstein - 2010 - The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication 6:1-42.
    This paper makes two central claims. The first is that there is an intimate and non-trivial relation between the mass/count distinction on the one hand and the measure/individuation distinction on the other: a defining property of mass nouns is that they denote sets of entities which can be measured, while count nouns denote sets of entities which can be counted. Crucially, this is a difference in grammatical perspective and not in ontological status. The second claim is that the mass/count distinction (...)

  • Inverse Linking, Possessive Weak Definites and Haddock Descriptions: A Unified Dependent Type Account.Justyna Grudzińska & Marek Zawadowski - forthcoming - Journal of Logic, Language and Information:1-22.
    This paper proposes a unified dependent type analysis of three puzzling phenomena: inversely linked interpretations, weak definite readings in possessives and Haddock-type readings. We argue that the three problematic readings have the same underlying surface structure, and that the surface structure postulated can be interpreted properly and compositionally using dependent types. The dependent type account proposed is the first, to the best of our knowledge, to formally connect the three phenomena. A further advantage of our proposal over previous analyses is (...)
