An Improvement in van der Sandt's Theory of Anaphoric Presupposition

ZHAO Meng-yuan;Center for the Study of Language and Cognition & Department of Philosophy,Zhejiang University;  
Van der Sandt's theory of anaphoric presupposition is the most promising one in solving the projection problem for presuppositions.Based on discourse representation structure(DRS),the theory constructs a resolution mechanism for anaphoric presuppositions.The present critiques of this theory ignore its two main problems:the quantification problem with variable binding and its incapability of analyzing anaphoric presuppositions with tense elements.For its binding problem,we can introduce set variables in replacement of individual variables in order to avoid the problem of correspondence.For the analysis on anaphoric presuppositions triggered by again and stop,we can introduce the DRS containing tense elements to realize their representations and resolutions.
