Scope and situation binding in LTAG using semantic unification
This paper develops a framework for TAG (Tree Adjoining Grammar) semantics that brings together ideas from diﬀerent recent approaches. Then, within this framework, an analysis of scope is proposed that accounts for the diﬀerent scopal properties of quantiﬁers, adverbs, raising verbs and attitude verbs. Finally, including situation variables in the semantics, diﬀerent situation binding possibilities are derived for diﬀerent types of quantiﬁcational elements
