Montague grammar is an approach to natural language semantics, named after American logician Richard Montague. The Montague grammar is based on formal logic, especially higher-order predicate logic and lambda calculus, and makes use of the notions of intensional logic, via Kripke models. Montague pioneered this approach in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Montague's thesis was that natural languages (like English) and formal languages (like programming languages) can be treated in the same way:

There is in my opinion no important theoretical difference between natural languages and the artificial languages of logicians; indeed, I consider it possible to comprehend the syntax and semantics of both kinds of language within a single natural and mathematically precise theory. On this point I differ from a number of philosophers, but agree, I believe, with Chomsky and his associates. (Universal Grammar 1970)

Montague published what soon became known as Montague grammar[1] in three papers:

  • 1970: "Universal grammar" (= UG)[2]
  • 1970: "English as a Formal Language" (= EFL)[3]
  • 1973: "The Proper Treatment of Quantification in Ordinary English" (= PTQ)[4]

In a 2004 paper,[5] Chris Barker linked Montague's treatment of quantification to the notion of continuation in programming language semantics.

In popular culture[edit]

In David Foster Wallace's novel Infinite Jest, the protagonist Hal Incandenza has written an essay entitled Montague Grammar and the Semantics of Physical Modality. Montague grammar is also referenced explicitly and implicitly several times throughout the book.
