CHAPTER FIVE: INTENSIONAL TYPE LOGIC Intensionality. Up to now the logical languages we have considered are extensional: we saw that our type logical language satisfies the principle of extensionality: if we substitute in a complex expression φ, α for β, and α and β have the same extension, then φ and φ[β/α] have the same extension. Although the two volumes of Logic, Language, and Meaning can be used independently of one another, together they provide a comprehensive overview of modern logic as it is used as a tool in the analysis of natural language. Both volumes provide exercises and their solutions. Volume 2, Intensional logic and Logical Grammar, begins with an introduction to the various/5(1).

In concluding this second part of our essay, we hope to have achieved what we set out to do: to introduce case-intensional first order logic as a versatile and useful quantified modal logic. We laid out its general framework, CIFOL, in Part I, starting with a comparative discussion of its relation with other frameworks, its general grammar, and. Intensional logic. Logics that include apparatus for signifying when two meanings (as opposed to two wffs, truth-values, sets, predicates, functions) are identical, and that analyzes inferences involving meanings. (Non-intensional logics are called extensional.) Anderson, Anthony C., "General Intensional Logic," in Gabbay and Guenthner, vol. II.

5 Conclusions In concluding this second part of our essay, we hope to have achieved what we set out to do: to introduce case-intensional first order logic as a versatile and useful quantified modal logic. We laid out its general framework, CIFOL, in Part I, starting with a comparative discussion of its relation with other frameworks, its. Intensional logic, as understood here, is based on the broad presupposition that so-called "intensional contexts" in natural language can be explained semantically by the idea of multiple reference. The text reviews tense, modality, and conditionals, then presents developments in intensional theory, including partiality and generalized quantifiers.

Languages of nominal tense logic are a simple augmentation of Priorean tense logic. They add to the familiar Priorean languages a new sort of atomic symbol, nominals. Like propositional variables, nominals are atomic sentences and may be freely combined with other wffs using the usual by: Nominal tense logic and other sorted intensional frameworks.

Its primary aim is to establish that these systems are logically inter- esting, and can provide useful models of natural language tense, temporal reference, and their interaction. Languages of nominal tense logic are a simple augmentation of Priorean tense logic.

The evolution of description logics (DLs) and propositional dynamic logics produced a hierarchy of decidable logics with multiple maximal elements.

It would be desirable to combine different maximal logics into one super-logic, but then inference may turn out to be undecidable. Since it is not really a logic but instead a framework for presenting proof-systems for logics, it makes sense to use the term "display calculi". Nominal tense logic and other sorted.

Topics include two-sorted type theory, normal forms, extensions and intensional logic, modal T-logic, persistence in intensional logic, generalized completeness of intensional logic, and natural language and intensional logic.In this paper we show how the tense logical approach investigated by Blackburn () can be used to encode hierarchical and temporal phonological information of the kind explored by Bird ().
