Introduction to generalized quantifiers

Abstract

Natural languages have many quantifier expressions that cannot be formalized in standard first-order logic: most students, many cars, etc. The talk will present a brief introduction to the theory of Lindström quantifiers and their applications to the formalization of natural language quantifier expressions.

Generalized quantifiers and Kripke's theory of truth

Abstract

Kripke's theory of truth provides one of the most influential contemporary theories of truth. We will discuss the modifications that should be made to Kripke's theory to accommodate languages expressing generalized quantifiers.
