Inde nites as Epsilon Terms: A Labelled Deduction Account


This paper gives an account of indeenites as epsilon terms within a model of utterance processing as a task of labelled deduction, in which partially speciied inputs are progressively resolved during the interpretation process. The formal tools used are labelled deduction (Gabbay forthcoming), the epsilon calculus (Meyer-Viol 1995), and a tree-logic (LOFT-Blackburn & Meyer-Viol 1994) which characterises the structure as it is incrementally built. The system has been partly implemented in SWI-Prolog as part of a longer-term project and the model is a state transition system which deenes the steps which license movement from state to state.
