This introduction to and overview of the "glue" approach is the first book to bring together the research of the major contributors to the field.

A new, deductive approach to the syntax-semantics interface integrates two mature and successful lines of research: logical deduction for semantic composition and the Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG) approach to the analysis of linguistic structure. It is often referred to as the "glue" approach because of the role of logic in "gluing" meanings together.

The "glue" approach has attracted significant attention from, among others, logicians working in the relatively new and active field of linear logic; linguists interested in a novel deductive approach to the interface between syntax and semantics within a nontransformational, constraint-based syntactic framework; and computational linguists and computer scientists interested in an approach to semantic composition that is grounded in a conceptually simple but powerful computational framework.This introduction to and overview of the "glue" approach is the first book to bring together the research of the major contributors to the field.

About the Author:

Mary Dalrymple is University Lecturer in General Linguistics and Fellow of Linacre College, Oxford University.

Review:

This volume comprises a representative collection of introductory and advanced papers documenting research in linguistic and formal aspects of linear logic based semantics and syntax in LFG. The resource logical approach is attractive in that it gives a clear deductive account of the syntax/semantics interface including quantifier and operator scope. It allows a tighter or looser coupling between syntax and semantics, while maintaining compositionality.

Anette Frank, Xerox Research Centre Europe

A valuable resrouce and reference book for both teaching and research in this comparatively new area.

Josef van Genabith, Department of Computer Applications, Dublin City University
