Book description:

This volume collects original papers - from some of the most prominent
linguists in the world - on the theory of meaning (semantics) and its
relation to syntax. The debate on the syntax-semantics interface, one
of the liveliest in the field, is sure to be invigorated by these
contributions. The contributors discuss central aspects of how
meaning and form are related, by looking at a range of topics where
such relations play a particularly prominent role. The topics address
reference and anaphora as well as tense and aspect. The specific
issues discussed include: the nature of identity statements, the
referential properties of indefinites and the debate on their scopal
properties, the theory of reconstruction, the proper characterization
of aspectual notions and actional classes, tense in embedded, and
intensional contexts. These papers offer a valuable source of the
latest hypotheses being developed on the subject of syntax/semantics
