Abstract:

Alternatives in Semantics is the first volume to focus on alternatives as a
key theme. It offers a survey of the use of alternatives in semantics and
pragmatics, and an overview of current approaches and applications of
alternative-based semantics, from both theoretical and experimental
perspectives. The chapters represent different theoretical frameworks, which
differ in the way they conceive of the source of alternatives, the status of
alternatives, or the precise way in which they enter semantic composition. The
contributions focus on various empirical phenomena making reference to
alternatives (negative polarity and free choice phenomena, implicatures,
presupposition, focus and intervention effects), offering new insights and
exploring connections between them. The chapters assembled in this volume
demonstrate the vitality of alternative-based semantics and offer a clear
perspective on the many challenging questions that arise from its increasing
range of applications.
