Introduction to Formal Semantics

Edwin S. Williams

Back to "Spring 2016" courses

We will study a formal approach to meaning that develops a technical framework for assigning meanings to expressions (primarily English ones) that makes use of functions and sets. This is a course for anyone interested in how formal methods can be applied to the study of language. The course covers material that is essential for any prospective student of linguistics or philosophy of language.
