Language and Logic (Introductory)
First week, from 17:00 to 18:30
This course provides an overview and introduction to the morphosyntax-semantics-pragmatics interface in the construal of sentence meaning. During the course we discuss the most prominent theories of information structure and discourse structure, as well as discourse modeling and annotation. Next to the basic notions, we will discuss various context-dependent phenomena from a cross-linguistic perspective, via case studies from different unrelated languages (Hungarian, Tagalog, Japanese, Lakhota and German).
