And just to muddy the waters further, a large chunk of Montague 
semantics consists of the model theoretic analysis of many linguistic 
phenomena (notably, indexicals) that had, before Montague, largely been 
consigned to the pragmatic scrapheap.  Moreoever, this work is referred 
to (oxymoronically?) as "formal pragmatics".    (02)
