This volume represents some initial attempts to extend Richard Montague's work on the syntax and semantics of natural languages. Taken together with Montague's collected works on the theory of language, it makes available to linguists and philosophers a view of the range of applications of Montague's theory to problems of syntax and semantics, and some comparisons of Montague's approach to other theories of language. Seven of the authors are primarily philosophers, and five are primarily linguists; their approaches are by no means homogeneous, but all share with Montague a concern for treating semantics as rigorously as syntax and a desire to uncover systematic connections between the two. (from the Preface, p. xi).
