Synopsis

(Projective) Discourse Representation Theory

Description

This is an implementation of the formal framework of Projective Discourse Representation Theory (Venhuizen et al. 2013; 2014), which is an extension of standard Discourse Representation Theory (Kamp 1981; Kamp & Reyle 1993) with projection pointers.

The implementation includes a translation from PDRT to DRT and First-order Logic, composition via different types of merge, and unresolved structures based on Montague Semantics, defined as Haskell functions.
