Semantics 2, WiSe 1718
This course presupposes a background in formal semantics compatible with the material discussed in Semantics 1. Based on some chapters of Sebastian Löbner's introductory textbook we investigate various more advanced topics in natural language semantics, possibly including (but not limited to) different types of meaning, definiteness vs. indefiniteness, quantification, predication, and cognition. These will be related to the architecture of constraint-based semantics. Literatur
