How Can One Greek Letter Help Us Understand Language? Lambda Calculus 

How can we capture the meanings of transitive sentences? How do we match our syntax trees to our semantics? In this week’s episode, we talk about lambda calculus: why we need it to explain what our other semantic machinery can’t, how to work out its math, and what it can show us about how words move around in sentences.

Our website also has extra content about this week’s topic at http://www.thelingspace.com/episode-69/
