### Abstract

We investigate semantical normalization proofs for typed combinatory logic and weak -calculus. One builds a model and a function `quote' which inverts the interpretation function. A normalization function is then obtained by composing quote with the interpretation function. Our models are just like the intended model, except that the function space includes a syntactic component as well as a semantic one. We call this a `glued' model because of its similarity with the glueing construction in category theory. Other basic type constructors are interpreted as in the intended model. In this way we can also treat inductively defined types such as natural numbers and Brouwer ordinals. We also discuss how to formalize -terms, and show how one model construction can be used to yield normalization proofs for two different typed -calculi -- one with explicit and one with implicit substitution. The proofs are formalized using Martin-Lof's type theory as a meta language and mechanized using the A...
