Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy. (Theoretical Philosophy)
2013 (English)In: Proceedings: Symposium on Language Acquisition and Language Evolution / [ed] Francisco Lacerda, Stockholm: Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University , 2013, 1, 51-62 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Is there a reason to believe that the evolution of language leads to compositional semantics? A proposal from Henry Brighton is presented and criticized. As an alternative, the role of compositionality for the complexity of semantic interpretation is emphasized.
