In this monograph our aim is to give an overall framework for relating the linguistic form of utterances and their semantic interpretation which is based on the idea of constraint propagation. In Chapter II we present an algorithm which converts linguistic form into a format, which we call a situation schema, better suited for semantic interpretation. In Chapter III we spell out the meaning relation, i.e. the interpretation of the situation schemata into a system of situation semantics. In Chapter IV we investigate the structure of the semantic interpretation through a hierarchy of many-sorted formal languages.
