Meeting Description:

Quotation is a sort of metarepresentation that is found in all natural
languages. Linguistic research has made clear that in quotation, there are
complex syntactic, morphological and graphematic mechanisms at work. In
philosophy of language, there are long-standing debates on quotation and
paradoxes, on the use-mention distinction, and the meaning of quotation
marks and quotation expressions. More recently, quotation has become a
topic within the debate on the semantics/pragmatics distinction.
