Language Game: Room with Montague

Descriptive prose is written, implementing a Montague grammar style compositional semantics. The prose describes the author's dorm room and the room in which the logician Richard Montague was murdered (only working from a few passages in another logician's biography). The terse evaluations of the semantic model are contrasted with much looser hand-authored descriptive prose, which the model would tend to consider nonsense.

Theory: Formal Semantics

Formal compositional semantics is a theory of meaning that starts with the remarkable assumption that human language works in the same way as formal logic. It tries to assign meaning primarily to assertions - factual claims - compositionally - by building up the "meaning" of a sentence one word and phrase at a time. "Meaning," in it's narrow sense, is a way of assigning truth or falsity. In more technical terms, a formula of first order logic is constructed with lambda calculus: through function composition, application, and lambda abstraction. Bags of intrinsically empty atomic things are included or not included, are the origin or destination of an arrow, until we arrive at T or F.
