About this series

The SLAP series is dedicated to the study of meaning in natural language, with an emphasis on formal approaches. It thus serves as a forum for research in semantics, philosophy of language, pragmatics and related disciplines. As such, it has played an important role in the development of the field of formal semantics. The series is associated with the journal Linguistics and Philosophy:
