Summary:
"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
