Teilprojekt Meaning and Structure des Graduiertenkollegs Meaning and linguistic competence
Projektleiter: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Pafel
Fragestellung des Projekts:
(i) What does the syntax/semantics-relation look like in a grammar where the syntactic and the semantic structure are two autonomous levels of linguistic representation with correspondence relations constituting the interface between them. In such a grammar the structure which is the input to semantic interpretation has specific semantic features, categories and structures and thus differs from any variety of Logical Form conceived as a syntactic level of representation.
(ii) What is the nature of well-formedness and semantic intuitions and what is their role in linguistic competence?
