During the subsequent break the laptop of the guy sitting next to me caught my eye. "Oh," I thought, noticing what was in the web browser, "he reads Language Log; That's cool." Then I noticed his name tag: Geoffrey Pullum, one of the main LL contributors. I was a bit surprised, since I didn't know he had any research interest in logic, but de Paiva's talk (going on now) is absolutely about the role of logic in computational linguistics, so I guess it makes sense he showed up.
I definitely need to read this paper of Seligman's, because it is good precedent on hybid logics that aren't quite modal.
