Basic concepts of Inferential Erotetic Logic in view of generalized entailment

Generalized entailment (cf. [2]) is a semantic relation between a family of sets of well-formed formulas and a set of well-formed formulas. Both single-conclusion entailment and multiple-conclusion entailment can be modelled in terms of generalized entailment. Moreover, one can explicate interrogative entailment understood in the Hamblin-Groenendijk/Stokhof manner by means of generalized entailment. In my talk I will point out some connec- tions between generalized entailment and the basic concepts of Inferential Erotetic Logic (cf. [1]).
