View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language or logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they include such expressions as no, some, all, both, and many. Peters and Westerstahl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how they work--their syntax, semantics, and inferential role.

About the Author:

Stanley Peters is at Stanford University. Dag Westerstahl is at University of Goteborg.

Review:


"This is a high-quality, informative, and authoritative study, offering a clear overview of the denotational semantics of natural language quantifiers, some new results, and a first frontal assault on analyzing the expressive power of natural languages. A substantial, interesting, challenging work."--Edward Keenan, UCLA


"This book gives a comprehensive account of quantifiers in both natural and formal languages, drawing on both linguistics and model theory. It creates a number of paradigms, because nothing so general has been attempted before. Much of the material is new or has never appeared in book form, but the authors have taken enormous care to pitch their exposition at a level that non-specialists can follow."--Wilfrid Hodges, Queen Mary University of London

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Quantification is a topic which brings together linguistics, logic, and philosophy. Quantifiers are the essential tools with which, in language or logic, we refer to quantity of things or amount of stuff. In English they include such expressions as no, some, all, both, and many. Peters and Westerstahl present the definitive interdisciplinary exploration of how they work - their syntax, semantics, and inferential role. Quantifiers in Language and Logic is intended for everyone with a scholarly interest in the exact treatment of meaning. It presents a broad view of the semantics and logic of quantifier expressions in natural languages and, to a slightly lesser extent, in logical languages. The authors progress carefully from a fairly elementary level to considerable depth over the course of sixteen chapters; their book will be invaluable to a broad spectrum of readers, from those with a basic knowledge of linguistic semantics and of first-order logic to those with advanced knowledge of semantics, logic, philosophy of language, and knowledge representation in artificial intelligence.
