The application of logic to grammar is a
fundamental issue in philosophy and has been
investigated by such renowned philosophers as
Leibniz, Bolzano, Frege, and Husserl. Language and Grammar
examines categorial grammars and type-logical
grammars, two linguistic theories that play a
significant role in this area of study yet have been
overshadowed until recently. The prominent scholars
contributing to this volume also explore the impact
of the Lambek program on linguistics and logical
grammar, producing, ultimately, an exciting and
important resource that demonstrates how
type-logical grammars are promising future models
of reasoning and computation.
