Proof Theory at the Syntax/Semantics Interface
Date: July 8-10, 2005
Loacation: Harvard, Emerson 108
Semantics plays a role in grammar in at least three guises. A
compositional interpretation is assigned to expressions; the well-formedness
of various constructions depends on morpho-syntactic features
with a semantic flavor; proof theory offers an approach to inference.
Bringing together semanticists, syntacticians, computational linguists
and possibly psycholinguists, the workshop will explore how the
use of proof theory as a mediator between model theoretic semantics
and generative syntax can lead to theoretically interesting insights
at the syntax/semantics interface.
This NSF sponsored workshop will start with a proof theoretic tutorial on Friday evening, followed by papers and discussion on Saturday and on Sunday morning.
