Abstract:

This collection of papers takes linguists to the leading edge of techniques in
generative lexicon theory, the linguistic composition methodology that arose
from the imperative to provide a compositional semantics for the contextual
modifications in meaning that emerge in real linguistic usage. Today’s growing
shift towards distributed compositional analyses evinces the applicability of
GL theory, and the contributions to this volume, presented at three
international workshops (GL-2003, GL-2005 and GL-2007) address the
relationship between compositionality in language and the mechanisms of
selection in grammar that are necessary to maintain this property. The core
unresolved issues in compositionality, relating to the interpretation of
context and the mechanisms of selection, are treated from varying perspectives
within GL theory, including its basic theoretical mechanisms and its
analytical viewpoint on linguistic phenomena.
