Description - The Generative Lexicon by James Pustejovsky

This text presents a theory of lexical semantics that addresses the problem of the "multiplicity of word meaning", that is, how we are able to give an infinite number of senses to words with finite meanings. Presenting a formally elaborated theory of a generative approach to word meaning, the book lays the foundations for an implemented computational treatment of word meaning that connects explicitly to a compositional semantics.
