Stefano Predelli (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the general traits of the traditional approach to natural-language semantics, and on the views about meaning and truth it presupposes. It considers the nature and structure of the inputs adequate for semantic analysis, and it analyses their role within customary compositional systems. The questions of disambiguation, and the distinction between so-called pure indexicals and demonstratives are discussed.

Keywords:   natural language semantics, indexical, demonstrative, disambiguation
