This e-book takes ideas constructed through researchers in theoretical desktop technology and adapts and applies them to the learn of traditional language that means. Summarizing greater than a decade of analysis, Chris Barker and Chung-chieh Shan recommend the Continuation speculation: that the which means of a average language expression can depend upon its personal continuation. partially I, the authors increase a continuation-based idea of scope and quantificational binding and supply an
explanation for order sensitivity in scope-related phenomena resembling scope ambiguity, crossover, superiority, reconstruction, destructive polarity licensing, dynamic anaphora, and donkey anaphora. half II outlines an cutting edge substructural common sense for reasoning approximately continuations and proposes an analysis
of the compositional semantics of adjectives resembling 'same' by way of parasitic and recursive scope. It additionally exhibits that sure circumstances of ellipsis might be handled as anaphora to a continuation, resulting in a brand new reason behind a subtype of sluicing referred to as sprouting.

The ebook makes an important contribution to paintings on scope, reference, quantification, and different vital elements of semantics and should entice semanticists in linguistics and philosophy at graduate point and above.
