    Temporal Reasoning with Aspectual Adverbs.Smessaert Hans & G. B. Ter Meulen Alice - 2004 - 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 (...)

    Semantic Realism, Rigid Designation, and Dynamic Semantics.G. B. ter Meulen Alice - 1998 - 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.

    Cognitive Modelling of Human Temporal Reasoning.G. B. ter Meulen Alice - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (5):623-624.
    Modelling human reasoning characterizes the fundamental human cognitive capacity to describe our past experience and use it to form expectations as well as plan and direct our future actions. Natural language semantics analyzes dynamic forms of reasoning in which the real-time order determines the temporal relations between the described events, when reported with telic simple past-tense clauses. It provides models of human reasoning that could supplement ACT-R models.

    From Frege to Dynamic Theories of Meaning.G. B. ter Meulen Alice - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (6):691-692.
    In designing stratified models of human language, understanding notions of logical consequence and validity of inference require separating the aspects of meaning that vary between models from logical constants. Modelling meaning requires choices regarding the primitives, where the Fregean program is still offering us the fundamental insights on the role of truth, judgement, and grasping or sharing of thoughts.
