Summary

Presents a theory of lexical semantics that addresses the problem of the multiplicity of word meaning, and lays the foundation for an implemented computational treatment of word meaning that connects to a compositional semantics. Subjects include semantics of nominals, the semantics of causation, and how semantic types constrain syntactic expression. Includes formal treatment of event semantics with subevents, and a general treatment of the problem of polysemy.
