Course Description

F582 introduces students to issues in the interpretation of French. The course focuses on major interpretive phenomena in French and on the nature of semantic representations as revealed by these phenomena. The goal is to show how fairly simple assumptions made precise by the tools of logical inquiry can reveal deep insights into knowledge of French and related issues of language acquisition. A pervading theme is the question of learnability of semantics knowledge. We discuss the nature of grammar and mental organization as revealed by semantic evidence.
