Advances in Generative Lexicon Theory by James Pustejovsky

By James Pustejovsky

This choice of papers takes linguists to the forefront of recommendations in generative lexicon thought, the linguistic composition technique that arose from the significant to supply a compositional semantics for the contextual alterations in that means that emerge in genuine linguistic utilization. Today’s transforming into shift in the direction of disbursed compositional analyses evinces the applicability of GL conception, and the contributions to this quantity, offered at 3 overseas workshops (GL-2003, GL-2005 and GL-2007) handle the connection among compositionality in language and the mechanisms of choice in grammar which are essential to continue this estate. The center unresolved concerns in compositionality, when it comes to the translation of context and the mechanisms of choice, are taken care of from various views inside GL concept, together with its easy theoretical mechanisms and its analytical perspective on linguistic phenomena.

The temperature is ninety and rising. e. Lunch was delicious but took forever. f. The bay curves from the lighthouse to a sandy spit and is lovely to swim in. The copredications that interest us involve predicates that select for two different, even incompatible types. In GL the underlined nouns receive a complex type; the so-called dot objects of GL first introduced by Pustejovsky (1994) are, in effect, best understood as objects of a particular complex type with two constituent types. The constituent types pick out aspects of the object, and the object’s complex type reflects the fact that it may have several, distinct, even incompatible aspects.
