    The relation with Montague Semantics is considered in work here by Giovanni de Felice, Konstantinos Meichanetzidis and Alexis Toumi this year.

    @jesuslop Good point, I’d forgotten about that but it fits in nicely into the “variations” section I just added

  1. Added a section about the category of DisCoCat models and the connection to the product space representation. Added a reference for this.

    I just glanced at that page and noticed

    given nouns such as “Alice” and “Bob” and reflexive verbs such as “loves” and “hates”,

    is there some reason these are called “reflexive”? Usually they are called “transitive”. A true reflexive verb is something like “perjure” which requires a reflexive pronoun for its object, while “wash” used intransitively can be considered reflexive if the missing direct object is semantically reflexive. E.g. when “John washed” = “John washed himself”.

    Yes, I agree the word should be “transitive”.

    Hey! I started linking this page to the one I created on pregroup grammar.

    I also edited every mention of compact closed and changed it to the technically correct rigid. Autonomous is a synonym but rigid has the advantage of not being confusable with star-autonomous.

    added cross-link with DisCoPy

    removed broken links from author names who don’t have an nnLab page (feel invited to create a page for them and the re-instantiate links!)

    Similarly, in the middle of the Idea section was a hyperlink directly to Wikipedia: Distributional semantics. I made that point now through an nnLab entry distributional semantics.
