A collection of papers awarded on the overseas convention `Applied common sense: common sense at Work', held in Amsterdam in December 1992. these days, the time period `applied common sense' has a truly broad which means, as a variety of purposes of logical equipment in desktop technology, formal linguistics and different fields testify. Such purposes are in no way limited to using recognized logical concepts: at its top, utilized good judgment contains a back-and-forth discussion among logical concept and the matter domain.
The papers specialise in the applying of common sense to the examine of average language, in syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and the impression of those experiences at the improvement of good judgment. within the final decade, the dynamic nature of common language has been the main attention-grabbing problem for logicians. Dynamic semantics is right here utilized to new themes, the dynamic procedure is prolonged to syntax, and several other methodological matters in dynamic semantics are systematically investigated. different methodological matters within the formal reports of ordinary language are mentioned, akin to the necessity for kinds, modal operators and different logical operators within the formal framework. additional articles handle the scope of those methodological concerns from different views starting from cognition to computation.
the quantity offers papers which are fascinating for graduate scholars and researchers within the box of common sense, philosophy of language, formal semantics and pragmatics, and computational linguistics.

2 John loves his wife and Bill does too. Most of the examples of VPE consist of a conjunctive coordination, where the full conjunct (usually the first one) is the source clause, while the ellided conjunct (usually the second one) is the target clause. Under the strict reading, the interpretation of the target clause is that Bill loves John's wife, while under the sloppy reading the interpretation is that Bill loves his own wife. As already mentioned, a question which is often raised in the literature is, what is the source of this ambiguity?

CON C L U DIN G REM ARK S This paper has proposed and advocated a model-based theory of pragmatic reasoning. The theory is at once formal, psychologically plausible, and addresses the problems of tractability. Initial experiments suggest that this is a promising approach, and one well worth pursuing. Future work will aim to develop the theory further, to investigate the extent of its applicability, and to demonstrate its utility by developing and implementing complex causal and teleological theories.
