Abstract : In order to model in compositional framework some phenomena of lexical pragmatics and in particular the ones studied by Nicholas Asher several contributions developed in our team did use the system F of Jean-Yves Girard to construct logical formulae expressing the meaning of sentences --- while other authors prefer to use Per Martin-Löf's type theory In this note we explain the motivations supporting our preference for system F.
