1
But… Why not to have a syntax built on the same principles as those of semantic composition?

2
syntactic categories a, an :np/n very :(n/n)/(n/n) young :n/n student, sonata :n plays :(np\s)/np

3
A very young student plays a sonata np/n (n/n)/(n/n) n/n n (np\s)/np np/n n np np\s n/n n np s

4
Reduction rules Right cancellation Left cancellation

5
Definition of syntactic types Primitive types: ex: np, n, s… (a finite set) Complex types: if A and B are types, - A/B is a type - B\A is a type

6
learning of categories Start : marie ::= np, marie dort ::= s Mariedort s nps

7
Start : marie ::= np, marie dort ::= s Mariedort s npnp\ss

11

12
functional interprétation B/A or A\B : functions from A to B B/A A B C/B B/A C/A

13
other rules «type raising»: associativity composition

14
Natural Deduction / - elimination: /- introduction: A/BB A [B]i A i A/B

15
[B] : hypothesis labelled n°i [B]i A i A/B : the hypothesis n°i is discharged

16
Example: « type-raising » A [A\B]1 B B/(A\B) 1

18
but… natural deductions are precisely -terms !

19
f : A/B :B f( ):A [x:B]i u:A i x.u:A/B

Pierre lit Tintin p:sn :(sn\s)/snsn x. y.lit(y,x) t:t: x. y.lit(y,x)) (t): sn\s y.lit(y,t) y.lit(y,t))(p): s lit(p,t)

25
Curry-Howard deduction / or \ - elimination / or \ - introduction hypothesis discharged hypothesis normalisation -term application abstraction variable bound variable -reduction

26
Normalisation and -reduction A natural deduction is said to be normal whenever it does not contain an introduction rule followed by an elimination rule: [A] B/A A B B

27
Normalisation and -reduction A natural deduction is said to be normal whenever it does not contain an introduction rule followed by an elimination rule: [A] B/A B B A

28
Normalisation and -reduction A natural deduction is said to be normal whenever it does not contain an introduction rule followed by an elimination rule: [A] B/A B B A B [A]

29
Normalisation and -reduction A natural deduction is said to be normal whenever it does not contain an introduction rule followed by an elimination rule: B/A B [A] B A A B

30
Normalisation and -reduction B/A B [A] B A A B ( x A. B A) B [ A /x A ]

31
sequent calculus (intuitionist) sequent antecedent consequent

32
To prove : A/B amounts to prove : B and then : A

33
Lambek calculus (with product) (sequents)

34
A fundamental restriction: non empty antecedents a simple exercise a very simple exercise *a very exercise npnn nnnn n,nnnnnn/),//()/(,/,/,/ nnn... nnnn //,/ nn,,, npnn nnnn nnnn),//()/(/ //... nn /

35
What sequent calculus reveals to us… cf. classical logic (some rules) (note the symmetries)

36
but also: (on the two sides) + axiom and cut-rule Permutation Contraction Weakening

37
Lambek calculus = intuitionistic logic WITHOUT A, C, P Intuitionistic multiplicative linear logic (+ restriction on non empty antecedents)

38
subformula property AABB B/A A/B A\B B\A AB A B

But…cut-rule AA

47
L {Cut} = L Fortunately : Cut-elimination theorem

55
General properties of Lambek grammars Weak equivalence with CFGs : –A result by M. Pentus (1993) No strong equivalence with CFGs : –A result by H. J. Tiede (1998) Polynomiality? No result yet… –probably NP complete

56
Limitations They are numerous: –only peripheral extraction The girl who I met : OK The girl who I met yesterday (or on the beach) : not OK –coordination and polymorphic types The mathematician whom Gottlob admired and Kazimierz detested : OK *The mathematician whom Gottlob admired Jim and Kazimierz detested : also OK!

57
–parasitic gaps The book John filed _ without reading _ (linearity properties) –empty signs The book John read (cf. non empty antecedents)

58
Extensions Multimodal Categorial Grammar (Moortgat, Oehrle, Morrill and their students) –ref. Categorial Type Logics in Van Benthem and ter Meulen (HLL) see further…

59
A « cousin » Minimalist Grammars: –Inspired by Chomskys minimalist program –Ed. Stabler they have also type-logical formulations: –W. Vermaat –Retoré – Lecomte see further… or another day…

60
to sum up We get rid of « syntactic » rules… by means of a logic which accepts a natural deduction presentation (because intuitionist) –proofs are -terms and also a sequent calculus –convenient for the proof search a logic which is linear (resource sensitive)
