Discourse dynamics

Participants : Maxime Amblard, Sai Qian.

Sai Qian and Maxime Amblard has presented a framework which constructs an event-style discourse semantics, [17] . The discourse dynamics are encoded in continuation semantics [54] and various rhetorical relations are embedded in the resulting interpretation of the framework. They assume that discourse and sentence are distinct semantic objects, that play different roles in meaning evaluation. Moreover, two sets of composition functions, for handling different discourse relations, are introduced.
