This ESSLLI workshop is devoted to connecting the linguistic use of resource logics and categorial grammar to minimalist grammars and related generative grammars. Minimalist grammars are relatively recent, and although they stem from a long tradition of work in transformational grammar, they are largely informal apart from a few research papers. The study of resource logics, on the other hand, is formal and stems naturally from a long logical tradition. So although there appear to be promising connections between these traditions, there is at this point a rather thin intersection between them. The papers in this workshop are consequently rather diverse, some addressing general similarities between the two traditions, and others concentrating on a thorough study of a particular point. Nevertheless they succeed in convincing us of the continuing interest of studying and developing the relationship between the minimalist program and resource logics. This introduction reviews some of the basic issues and prior literature. 1 The interest of a convergence What would be the interest of a convergence between resource logical investigations of

The primary focus of this paper is to establish an abstract fragment in \multimodal logical grammar" or Categorial Type Logics (CTL) [25] that simulates Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG) [38]. By showing that the simulation is weakly equivalent to the generative power of CCG, we can prove that the abstract fragment is mildlycontext sensitive and can be parsed in polynomial time. This is the rst time that such an observation has been established for a nontrivial fragment with generative power signicantly greater than that of the Lambek calculus L. Other potentially interesting observations are that we can, if so desired, give a logical interpretation for CCG (thus countering criticism in e.g. [26]), and that we can establish a more negrained crosslinguistic characterization of CCG's combinatory rules based on their formulation in the simulation. Keywords: Categorial Grammar, CCG, CTL, MMLG, mild contextsensitivity 1 Introduction The perceived position of natural language o...

Several proposals have been made in order to implement some aspects of the Minimalist Program (and among them Stabler’s minimalist grammars) logically. Among these proposals, we compare W.Vermaat’s thesis and a previous paper of the author. Then we confront these works with the new perspective brought by Lecomte and Retoré, which seems to gain in clarity by separating the syntactic and the semantic components. 1
