This monograph begun lifestyles as a sequence of papers documenting 5 years of analysis into the logical foundations of Categorial Grammar, a grammatical paradigm which has shut analogies with Lambda Calculus and sort conception. The technical thought awarded the following stems from the interface among good judgment and Linguistics and, particularly, the speculation of generalized quantification. A specific framework with lambda calculus-oriented semantics is a handy automobile for generalizing semantic insights (obtained in a number of corners of common language) into one coherent theory.

The publication goals to illustrate to fellow logicians that the ensuing utilized lambda calculus has intrinsic logical curiosity. within the base line, the assumption is not only to `break the syntactic code' of average languages yet to appreciate the cognitive functioning of the human mind.
