Personal pronouns Among the symbols which count as nominals are words like I, you, he, she, it etc.228 We have already in Chapter Eight discussed how I is to be treated in a context-dependent interpretation of a A-categorial language in which it is a member of F l' Our first task in this chapter is to modify its semantic rule, along the lines suggested by 9.2 (p. 131), for a language in which it is of category (0, (0, 1». We assume that D is an intended system of context-dependent domains. This means that Do is a set of open propositions (in the sense of p. 115) and the other domains are appropriately built up as set out on p. 116. We give the following rule for I:

With this rule for I we do not need either the open individuals of p. 118 or the complicated rule for predicates which we stated for sleep in 8.13 but can use a version like 8.9 (p. 117).230
