The logical study of language is becoming more interdisciplinary, playing a role in fields such as computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science and game theory. This new edition, written by the leading experts in the field, presents an overview of the latest developments at the interface of logic and linguistics as well as a historical perspective. It is divided into three parts covering Frameworks, General Topics and Descriptive Themes.
- Completely revised and updated - includes over 25% new material

"The first edition was published in 1997, focusing, as stated in the preface, on ‘the interface of logic and linguistics, showing how a substantial body of insights and techniques had developed about natural language through cooperation, and sometimes competition between various approaches.’ This second edition offers updates throughout, new commentary by the authors, and coverage of new topics. Nine contributions discuss frameworks, including Montague grammar, categorical type logics, discourse representation in context, situation theory, GB theory, and game-theoretical semantics and pragmatics, among other topics…. Johan van Benthem is affiliated with the U. of Amsterdam and Stanford U.; Alice ter Meulen, with the U. of Groningen."--SciTech Book News
