Tarski's t-scheme as an alleged basis of Montague semantics

Logic and Logical Philosophy 15 (4):369-379 (2006)

Authors
Abstract
My point in this paper is to focus on some details of Alfred Tarski’s writing that in my opinion have not been aptly represented — or aptly rejected — in Richard Montague’s grammar and to agree with those who share Tarski’s view that human language is something uncapturable. The paper consists of two parts, concerning 1) some attempts to formalize the non-declarative utterances, and 2) the limitations of T-scheme and of Montague grammar
