The Interpretive Tract: Working Papers in Syntax and Semantics.

MIT Working Papers in Linguistics v.25.  Edited by Uli Sauerland and
Orin Percus.  April 1998.  295 pages.  $12.


This volume is about the interpretive component of the grammar. It is
about how the form of sentences relates to their informational
contribution and to their conditions of use. Accordingly, the papers
here try to pinpoint aspects of the meaning of sentences, to draw
connections between these aspects of meaning and material present at
syntactic structure, and to ask how we get one from the other. The
papers here were written over the past five years. Interest in
semantics coalesced and intensified during these years at MIT; we are
especially happy to publish these papers now, in the first year of the
new PhD program specializing in semantics.
