Meeting Description: Communication of Certainty and Uncertainty: Linguistic, Psychological, Philosophical Aspects
3-5 October 2012
University of Macerata (Italy)

The Conference focuses on how interlocutors express their individual degrees of Certainty or Uncertainty towards the piece of information they are giving during the communicative process, i.e. at the time when (=Now) and in the place where (=Here) communication occurs. This topic may be related, more or less directly, to what in the linguistic literature is called epistemicity and evidentiality.
