Time Table:

10:00-12:00 Session 1: Tutorial Lecture by Eric McCready

Title: Theories of Evidentiality

Abstract: Evidentiality has been an increasingly popular research area
in formal semantics and pragmatics. In this talk, I introduce several
influential recent theories of evidentials and (some of) the phenomena
that they have been used to analyze. I also discuss the suitability of
theories of evidence found in the epistemological and philosophy of
science literature for the foundations of the theory of evidentiality and
indicate what I take to be the characteristics required for such a theory.

12:00-13:30
Lunch

13:30-17:30
Session 2: Tutorial Lecture by Frank Veltman

Title: ''Or else, what?''

Abstract: In this talk I will present the theory of imperatives that I have
developed in the past five years and apply it to a number of problems
involving disjunction. In particular I will use it to analyse pseudo-
imperatives and a variant of the Miners Paradox.
