Discourse Representation Theory

Chapter
Part of the Handbook of Philosophical Logic book series (HALO, volume 15)

Abstract

Discourse Representation Theory, or DRT, is one of a number of theories of dynamic semantics, which have come upon the scene in the course of the past twenty years. The central concern of these theories is to account for the context dependence of meaning. It is a ubiquitous feature of natural languages that utterances are interpretable only when the interpreter takes account of the contexts in which they are made – utterance meaning depends on context. Moreover, the interaction between context and utterance is reciprocal.
