Tense, Aspect, and Indexicality

James Higginbotham (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on two main issues: the issue of indexicality, and the extension of the notions of logic to indexical languages; and the issue of the notation itself. It begins with a discussion of logical syntax, and then turns from there to possible characterizations of the notion of consequence. It concludes with a discussion of some further semantic phenomena, which underscore the need to take context and language together.

Keywords:   tense, quantification, cross-reference, logical syntax, spoken language
