Abstract : Generative Lexical Semantics aims, among other things, to model co-compositional meanings that classical Montague semantics is unable to express. This paper outlines a simple extension of Montague semantics which amends the standard compositional mechanisms for the use of specific terms provided by the lexicon, in order to account for this theory. We hope that such a logical system would prove both simpler and easier to implement than the formulations currently used.
