[An attractive feature of this book is that it contains four summaries of four different Goldilocks types. The blurb at the back of this book got you here, so while Goldilocks would classify it as much too short, my publisher likes it best of all four. Each of the ten chapters in this book...
[This chapter discusses Boolean algebras and the Boolean notions used in this book. The first section is meant for those who want to get to the main text of the book as soon as they can, it lists the basic notions used, lavishly illustrated with structure diagrams. The second section is an...
[In this chapter I give an overview of various aspects of what I here call Mountain semanticsMountain semantics, the Boolean semantics of mass nouns, singular count nouns and plural count nouns which developed from the work of Godehard Link.]
[In Mountain semanticsMountain semantics mass nouns and count nouns take their denotations in different domains. This sortingSorting underlies the semantics of constructions that involve counting, count comparisonCount comparison and distributivityDistributivity.]
[In Iceberg semanticsIceberg semantics the denotation of an NP is an i(ceberg)-set, a pair of sets , where the base generates the body under sum. You can think of the body as what was the full interpretation of the NP in Mountain semanticsMountain semantics; for count NPs, the base is...
[This chapter develops the Iceberg semanticsIceberg semantics account of the distinctions count-mass and neat-mess; it further develops the DP semantics and addresses some mass-count puzzles.]
[Neat mass nouns are interpreted as neat mass i-sets. A neat mass i-set is an i-set with an atomistic base and a disjoint set of base atoms.]
[Mess mass nouns are interpreted as mess massMess mass i-sets. A mess massMess mass i-set is an i-set with a base that is either not atomisticAtomistic (or even not atomicAtomic) or is atomisticAtomistic with a set of base atoms that is not disjoint. The class of mess massMess mass i-sets is an...
[Classifier phrasesClassifierphrase are phrases with a classifier or measure element and a classifier interpretationClassifierinterpretation; measure phrasesClassifierphrase are phrases with a classifier or measure element and a measure interpretationClassifierinterpretation.]
[As nominal elements, classifiers and measures are interpreted as i-sets. The notion of i-set has to be extended for this, because neither is of the same type as the interpretations of normal NPs. Classifier i-sets and measure i-sets are introduced.]
