Abstract:

Does context and context-dependence belong to the research agenda of
semantics - and, specifically, of formal semantics? Not so long ago many
linguists and philosophers would probably have given a negative answer to
the question. However, recent developments in formal semantics have
indicated that analyzing natural language semantics without a thorough
accommodation of context-dependence is next to impossible. The
classification of the ways in which context and context-dependence enter
semantic analysis, though, is still a matter of much controversy and some
of these disputes are ventilated in the present collection. This book is
not only a collection of papers addressing context-dependence and methods
for dealing with it: it also records comments to the papers and the
authors' replies to the comments. In this way, the contributions themselves
are contextually dependent.

In view of the fact that the contributors to the volume are such key
figures in contemporary formal semantics as Hans Kamp, Barbara Partee,
Reinhard Muskens, Nicholas Asher, Manfred Krifka, Jaroslav Peregrin and
many others, the book represents a quite unique inquiry into the current
activities on the semantics side of the semantics/pragmatics boundary.

Audience 
Researchers and students of linguistics, philosophy of language,
computational science and logic.
