The papers in this collection are all devoted to single theme: logic and its applications in computational linguistics. They share many themes, goals and techniques, and any editorial classification is bound to highlight some connections at the expense of other. Nonetheless, we have found it useful to divide these papers (somewhat arbitrarily) into the following four categories: logical semantics of natural language, grammar and logic, mathematics with linguistic motivations, and computational perspectives. In this introduction, we use this four-way classification as a guide to the papers, and, more generally, to the research agenda that underlies them. We hope that the reader will find it a useful starting point to the collection.
