Title: A “Formal” Affair? An analysis of the empirical & conceptual underpinnings of Discourse Representation Theory
Authors: Zheng, David
Advisors: Goldberg, Adele
Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2014
Abstract: I provide a critique of Discourse Representation Theory, a formalism that works at the intersection of model theoretic semantics and generative syntactic theory. In doing so, I aim to provide a more general critique of formal semantics and provide some alternative approaches towards a psychologically robust account of language.
