Genericity in language. Issues of syntax logical form and interpretation

Denis Delfitto

This contribution deals with the semantic manifestations and the syntactic encoding of genericity in natural language – that is, with sentences that express some kind of regularity and normativity, abstracting away from reference to specific events or facts. Assuming as a starting point the most valuable achievements of the current literature on genericity – in particular the distinction between sentence-level and NP-level genericity – this book aims at decomposing genericity into its modular components, by means of a detailed examination of the contribution of grammatical aspect – in particular imperfectivity – and of the internal syntax of noun phrases. The result is an updated Carlsonian analysis according to which generic sentences are categorical statements ascribing properties to a subject of predication. Theoretically, this case-study intends to argue in favor of an approach to the semantics of natural language that assigns a central position to the issues of logical form – in full agreement with Davidsons program in semantics – and in favor of the view that many issues of logical form can be successfully dealt with only by taking into account the contribution of formal syntax.

Traditional approaches rely on high-quality lexicons, manually-built templates, and linguistic features which are either domain- or representation-specific. In this paper we present a general method based on an attention-enhanced encoder-decoder model. We encode input utterances into vector
