Multimodal Linguistic Inference

In this paper we compare grammatical inference in the context of simple and of mixed Lambek systems. Simple Lambek systems are obtained by taking the logic of residuation for a family of multiplicative connectives =; ffl; n, together with a package of structural postulates characterizing the resource management properties of the ffl connective. Different choices for Associativity and Commutativity yield the familiar logics NL, L, NLP, LP. Semantically, a simple Lambek system is a unimodal logic: the connectives get a Kripke style interpretation in terms of a single ternary accessibility relation modeling the notion of linguistic composition for each individual system. The simple systems each have their virtues in linguistic analysis. But none of them in isolation provides a basis for a full theory of grammar. In the second part of the paper, we consider two types of mixed Lambek systems. The first type is obtained by combining a number of unimodal systems into one multimodal logic. The...

Substructural logics are traditionally obtained by dropping some or all of the structural rules from Gentzen's sequent calculi LK or LJ. It is well known that the usual logical connectives then split into more than one connective. Alternatively, one can start with the (intuitionistic) Lambek calculus, which contains these multiple connectives, and obtain numerous logics like: exponentialfree linear logic, relevant logic, BCK logic, and intuitionistic logic, in an incremental way. Each of these logics also has a classical counterpart, and some also have a "cyclic" counterpart. These logics have been studied extensively and are quite well understood. Generalising further, one can start with intuitionistic BiLambek logic, which contains the dual of every connective from the Lambek calculus. The addition of the structural rules then gives Bilinear, Birelevant, BiBCK and Biintuitionistic logic, again in an incremental way. Each of these logics also has a classical counterpart, and som...

In this paper we study Lambek systems as grammar logics: logics for reasoning about structured linguistic resources. The structural parameters of precedence, dominance and dependency generate a cube of resourcesensitive categorial type logics. From the pure logic of residuation NL, one obtains L, NLP and LP in terms of Associativity, Commutativity, and their combination. Each of these systems has a dependency variant, where the product is split up into a leftheaded and a rightheaded version. We develop a theory of systematic communication between these systems. The communication is twoway: we show how one can fully recover the structural discrimination of a weaker logic from within a system with a more liberal resource management regime, and how one can reintroduce the structural flexibility of a stronger logic within a system with a more articulate notion of structuresensitivity. In executing this programme we follow the standard logical agenda: the categorial formula language is enriched with extra control operators, socalled structural modalities, and on the basis of these control operators, we prove embedding theorems for the two directions of substructural communication. But our results differ from the Linear Logic style of embedding with S4like modalities in that we realize the communication in both directions in terms of a
Fibring Labelled Deduction Systems

We give a categorial characterization of how labelled deduction systems for logics with a propositional basis behave under unconstrained fibring and under fibring that is constrained by symbol sharing. At the semantic level, we introduce a general semantics for our systems and then give a categorial characterization of fibring of models. Based on this, we establish the conditions under which our systems are sound and complete with respect to the general semantics for the corresponding logics, and establish requirements on logics and systems so that completeness is preserved by both forms of fibring.
Canonical extensions and relational completeness of some substructural logics

Part I of this paper is developed in the tradition of Stonetype dualities, where we present a new topological representation for general lattices (influenced by and abstracting over both Goldblatt's [17] and Urquhart's [46]), identifying them as the lattices of stable compactopens of their dual Stone spaces (stability refering to a closure operator on subsets). The representation is functorial and is extended to a full duality. In part II, we consider latticeordered algebras (lattices with additional operators) , extending the J'onsson and Tarski representation results [30] for Boolean algebras with Operators. Our work can be seen as developing, and indeed completing, Dunn's project of gaggle theory [13, 14]. We consider general lattices (rather than Boolean algebras), with a broad class of operators, which we dubb normal, and which includes the J'onssonTarski additive operators. Representation of `algebras is extended to full duality. In part III we discuss applications in logic...
