Compositional Semantics Grounded in Commonsense Metaphysics

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


We argue for a compositional semantics grounded in a strongly typed ontology that reflects our commonsense view of the world and the way we talk about it in ordinary language. Assuming the existence of such a structure, we show that the semantics of various natural language phenomena may become nearly trivial.
