This e-book examines the speculation of "direct compositionality", which calls for that semantic interpretation continue in tandem with syntactic mix. even though linked to the dominant view in formal semantics of the Seventies and Eighties, the feasibility of direct compositionality remained unsettled, and extra lately the dialogue as to if or now not this view could be maintained has receded. The syntax-semantics interplay is now frequently noticeable as a technique in
which the syntax builds representations which, on the summary point of logical shape, are despatched for interpretation to the semantics portion of the language college. within the first prolonged dialogue of the speculation of direct compositionality for two decades, this publication considers no matter if its abandonment
might were untimely and no matter if in truth direct compositionality isn't really finally an easier and better perception of the grammar than the traditional account of the syntax-semantics interface in generative grammar. It includes contributions from either side of the controversy, locates the talk within the surroundings of quite a few formal theories, and attracts on examples from a number of languages and a variety of empirical phenomena.
