Abstract

This introductory part presents enough of the basic ideas of game-theoretical semantics (GTS) to serve as a basis for a new theory of anaphoric pronouns to be presented in Part III, below. Not all of the details will actually be needed for the account we are going to offer of the semantics of anaphoric pronouns, but since the attractiveness of our account is partly due to its being an aspect of a more comprehensive systematic theory, it is in order to sketch the basic ideas of game-theoretical semantics in general.
