Editorial Reviews


an impressive lineup of papers in formal semantics that are concerned with direct compositionality ... I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the specifics of how, for instance, binding and quantification can be accounted for within syntactically sparse frameworks. Direct Compositionality is rich with innovative, well-argued proposals, and anyone who is concerned with the kinds of constructions that are taken up in this volume will certainly benefit from reading it. Martin L. Jonsson, Language
