11.7 Further Reading

Kamp's original formulation of DRT (Kamp 1981) is surely of historical importance, but for a thorough introduction, your best bet is Kamp \& Reyle's textbook (Kamp \& Reyle 1993). This voluminous book not only presents the basics of the theory, but also extends it with detailed coverage of quantification, tense and aspect, and plural noun phrases. For a complete different angle of approaching the theory, try Volume 2 of Gamut (Gamut 1991). You will find here a description of Groenendijk \& Stokhof's dynamic predicate logic and an alternative formulation of DRT. Another article worth mentioning here is Van der Sandt's ``Presupposition Projection as Anaphora Resolution'', demonstrating the virtues of explicit discourse representation structures to handle presuppositional expressions.

Several compositional versions of DRT have been proposed, the earliest dating from the end of the eighties (Zeevat 1989). Since then several alternative proposals and extensions have been made. An interesting starting point for exploring compositional DRT is Muskens' work based on type theory (Muskens 1996). The framework of -DRT (Kohlhase et al. 1996, Kuschert 1999) is probably the most worked-out theory for compositional versions of DRT.
