Concerning Olga, the Beautiful Little Street Dancer: Adjectives as Higher-Order Polymorphic Functions
In this paper we suggest a typed compositional semantics for nominal compounds of the form [Adj Noun] that models adjectives as higher-order polymorphic functions, and where types are assumed to represent concepts in an ontology that reflects our commonsense view of the world and the way we talk about it in ordinary language. In addition to [Adj Noun] compounds our proposal seems also to suggest a plausible explanation for well known adjective ordering restrictions.
