Segmented Discourse Representation Theory (SDRT) [2,7] provides a dynamic semantics for discourse that exploits a rich notion of discourse structure. According to SDRT, a text is segmented into constituents related to each other by means of rhetorical relations; the resulting structure, known as a segmented discourse representation structure or SDRS has various semantic effects. This theory has shown how discourse structure makes contributions to the interpretation of a variety of linguistic phenomena, including tense, modality, presupposition, the interpretation of anaphoric pronouns and ellipsis. SDRT exploits dynamic semantics [20,14] to interpret SDRSs. We investigate here the advantages of integrating SDRT within continuation style semantics of the sort developed in . © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
