Cresswell I 163
Semantics/Hans Kamp/Irene Heim/Cresswell: (Kamp 1983, Heim 1983, independent of each other):
1. Thesis:
Facts about descriptions, in particular their anaphoric use, require a representation level between surface form and logical form (surface/deep structure).
2. Thesis:
Sentence meaning/Kamp/Heim: the sentence meaning is no longer given by the truth conditions!
Description/CresswellVsHintikka/CresswellVsKamp/CresswellVsHeim: although there is a new view in terms of descriptions (among others, by Lewis 1975), we do not need a new kind of semantic theory.
Λ-categorial language/Cresswell: in it we can formulate the semantic insights of Kamp/Heim.
S: syntactic category: the syntactic category is either simple or complex.
Syntactic category 0: sentence
Syntactic category 1: name
Complex syntactic category: form .
