Meeting Description: Quantitative Data in Formal Semantics and Pragmatics
Special thematic session as part of the 19th Amsterdam Colloquium
December 18-20, 2013, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Recent years have seen increasing efforts in bringing empirical data from either psycholinguistic experiments or corpus-based investigations to bear on formal semantic and pragmatic theories.

This laudable empirical reorientation also brings into focus the quantitative dimension frequently inherent in empirical data sets. In turn, this calls for theories and models that are sensitive to or even predict quantitative data. This workshop is dedicated to novel research in formal semantics and pragmatics that takes quantitative empirical data seriously.

Invited Speakers:

Adrian Brasoveanu (UC Santa Cruz)
