The syntactic process by Mark Steedman ( )
19 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book Mark Steedman argues that the surface syntax of natural languages maps spoken and written forms directly to a compositional semantic representation that includes predicate-argument structure, quantification, and information structure without forming any intervening structural representation. His purpose is to develop a principled theory of natural grammar that is directly compatible with both explanatory linguistic accounts of a number of problematic syntactic phenomena and a straightforward computational account of the way sentences are mapped onto representations of meaning."
Taking scope the natural semantics of quantifiers by Mark Steedman ( )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A novel view of the syntax and semantics of quantifier scope that argues for a "combinatory" theory of natural language syntax

Structure and intonation by Mark Steedman ( Book )
5 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interpretations that the grammar provides for such constituents correspond to the entities and open propositions that are concerned in certain discourse-related aspects of intonational meaning that have variously been described as 'theme' and 'rheme', 'given' and 'new', or 'presupposition' and 'focus'."
LFG and psychological explanation by Mark Steedman ( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Combinatory grammars and parasitic gaps by Mark Steedman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gapping as constituent coordination by Mark Steedman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Type-raising and directionality in combinatory grammar by Mark Steedman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The form of rules in combinatory categorial grammars (CCG) is constrained by three principles, called 'adjacency', 'consistency' and 'inheritance.' These principles have been claimed elsewhere to constrain the combinatory rules of composition and type raising in such a way as to make certain linguistic universals concerning word order under coordination follow immediately. The present paper shows that the three principles have a natural expression in a unification-based interpretation of CCG in which directional information is an attribute of the arguments of functions grounded in string position. The universals can thereby be derived as consequences of elementary assumptions. Some desirable results for grammars and parsers follow, concerning type-raising rules."

The formal description of musical perception by Mark Steedman ( Book )
2 editions published between 1972 and 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The well-tempered computer by Mark Steedman ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The physiological mechanism by which even musically untutored people can comprehend novel melodies resembles that by which they comprehend sentences of their native language. The paper identifies a syntax, a semantics, and a domain or 'model'. These elements are examined in application to the task of harmonic comprehension and analysis of unaccompanied melody, and a computational theory is argued for."
Surface structure, intonation, and meaning in spoken language by Mark Steedman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The paper briefly reviews a theory of intonational prosody and its relation syntax, and to certain oppositions of discourse meaning that have variously been called 'topic and comment', 'theme and rheme', 'given and new', or 'presupposition and focus.' The theory, which is based on Combinatory Categorial Grammar, is presented in full elsewhere. The present paper examines its consequences for the automatic synthesis and analysis of speech."
