When reading the Inquisitive Semantics and Pragmatics
paper, focus for now on the semantics sections, 1-3
, and also have a look at section 5.3, about compliance. We will look at the remaining sections of the paper in a few weeks time.
As an exercise, it would be good to prove the facts about entailment in section 3.4. This will be an excellent way to get to know the system better. If you encounter any difficulties, feel free to ask us next time, or drop by our offices.
Next week we will begin to present some material from the Inquisitive Logic paper as well. If you want to read ahead, focus on sections 1,2,7,8,9. Also try to establish at least a global understanding of section 3. Sections 4,5,6 are optional, especially recommended for those of you who are specifically interested in the logical aspects of the framework.
