Context-Sensitivity and Semantic Minimalism:New Essays on Semantics and Pragmatics: New Essays on Semantics and Pragmatics

OUP Oxford, 25 de out de 2007 - 384 páginas
Fifteen specially written papers examine the ways in which the content of what we say is dependent on the context in which we say it. At the centre of the current debate on this subject is Cappelen and Lepore's claim that context-sensitivity in language is best captured by a combination of semantic minimalism and speech act pluralism. Using this theory as their starting point, the contributors to this volume develop a variety of different views about the role of context incommunication, and reveal its wide-ranging implications for all issues in the philosophy of language and linguistics.
