Meaning Versus Grammar

An Inquiry into the Computation of Meaning and the Incompleteness of Grammar

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
Meaning versus Grammar investigates the complicated relationship between grammar, computation, and meaning in natural languages. It details conditions under which meaning-driven processing of natural language is feasible, discusses an operational and accessible implementation of the grammatical cycle for Dutch, and offers analyses of a number of further conjectures about constituency and entailment in natural language.
