Edward P. Stabler, J. As seen by the overview of the book's contents, The Logical Approach to Syntax covers.

Edward P. Stabler, Jr. (University of California, Los Angeles). a wide range of topics from a presentation of deductive systems and an introduction. Although the breadth of coverage is extensive, touching on several. different disciplines, the book is not a linguistics, mathematical logic, or Prolog text.

Stabler's book contriibutes to a substantial reevaluation of what it means to formalize a linguistic theory, and what theories are amenable to formalization. It contributes new techniques to logic programming and shows that logic programming applications in linguistics can go beyond the simple encoding of phrase-structure grammars in Prolog. Dr. Fernando Pereira, AT&T Bell Laboratories (Endorsement). This work presents a novel and original approach to computational linguistics, and is one of the first serious attempts to deal with GB in a rigorous computational manner.

By formalizing recent syntactic theories for natural languages Stabler shows how their complexity can be handled without guesswork or oversimplification.

By formalizing recent syntactic theories for natural languages in the tradition of Chomsky's Barriers, Stabler shows how their complexity can be handled without guesswork or oversimplification. He introduces logical representations of these theories together with special deductive techniques for exploring their consequences that will provide linguists with a valuable tool for deriving and testing theoretical predictions and for experimenting with alternative formulations of grammatical principles.

Stabler's novel approach allows results to be deduced with straightforward calculations and provides a systematic framework for tackling the problem of how speakers can infer the properties of an utterance from principles of the grammar. The special treatment of equality, induction principles, and inclusion of a general method for collecting structures from proofs means that sophisticated linguistic arguments can be carried out in detail, giving a rich perspective to issues in linguistic theory and parsing.
