DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this workshop is to attract very high quality recent
work on the interdigitation of semantic and pragmatic theories. This
topic has become a centre of intense interest in the last year or so
and a book series called Current Research in the Semantics-Pragmatics
Interface (CRiSPI) of which the three organizers of this workshop are
editors or editorial advisors, may have played some role in promoting
this interest. The workshop is interested in attracting papers on the
currently fashionable topics of, among others, presupposition,
anaphora resolution, quantification, propositional attitude
attribution and modality, as well as other less recently fashionable
topics such as conditionals. Logical, linguistic, psycholinguistic and
computational approaches to these topics will be welcomed. We hope
that each invited speaker will be able to have a one hour slot, and
the other speakers will have 40 minutes (including
discussion). Selected papers may be published as a CRiSPI volume
provisionally titled 'Where Semantics Meets Pragmatics: The Michigan
Papers' (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/series/crispi)
