Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts with relevant to the discussion on the foundational notions of composition, values and interpretation and their relation to the interfaces to other disciplines. The basic claims of traditional truth-conditional semantics are that the semantic interpretation of a sentence is connected to the truth of that sentence in a situation, and that the meaning of the sentence is derived compositionally from the semantic values meaning of its constituents and the rules that combine them. A semantic theory always stands in relation to other disciplines of linguistic theorizing. For example, it operates on syntactic inputs and it feeds pragmatic processes. A quite natural way to characterize semantic theories is to describe them as the kind of theory that is concerned with the meaning of natural language expressions.

Keywords: linguistic theorizing; natural language expressions; semantic theory
