It is important for any semantic theory with purported relevance for natural language that it be integrated with explicit theories of linguistic form which can provide linguistically adequate analyses for a representative range of natural language phenomena. One reason for the great impact which Montague Grammar has had on linguistic semantics is the high degree to which Montague’s semantic approach allowed incorporation with current syntactic analyses. But, as we stressed in the Introduction, other aspects of linguistic form in addition to syntax must be taken into account in the semantic analysis.
