Vera Hohaus & Wataru Uegaki – Introduction to semantics

This unit is an introduction to formal semantics. We will introduce some conceptual and formal foundations and then go on to build a basic model of meaning composition, using situations. Some of the phenomena discussed in the unit include the interpretation of determiners, negative polarity items as well as modification and ambiguity. No background required, but feel free to get in touch if you wonder if this course is suitable for you.
