Chapter Summary

The first paper of this part, A Theory of Truth and Semantic Representation (TTSR), is probably the most widely known of those in this part, and perhaps, at this point in time, of all the papers in this collection. Since linguistic communication seems to rely on this to such a very large extent, it would have been remarkable if languages had not developed grammaticised mechanisms for exploiting this possibility of providing information cumulatively, or if the tenses in languages like French and English had been the only instances of such grammaticisation. But there are some indications that the tide may be turning again and that we are moving in a direction where logical and statistical methods are made to work hand in hand, by a community of computational and non-computational linguists.

Keywords:discourse representation; languages; linguistic communication; TTSR
