Pragmatics & Cognition announces a special issue on

The Concept of Reference in the Cognitive Sciences

Guest Editors: Ami Kronfeld and Lawrence Roberts

TOPICS:

The mind's ability to think of objects in the world, the properties of
language that allow it to represent such objects and the ability of
human beings to indicate to each other which of these objects they
wish to talk about are all parts of the central concept of Reference.
Not surprisingly, the cognitive sciences, including developmental
psychology, theoretical and computational linguistics, artificial
intelligence and of course the philosophy of language and mind have
all dealt --- under different terminology and from different
perspectives - - with aspects of this concept.

This special issue of Pragmatics & Cognition is intended to bring
together the various cognitive disciplines in a joint discussion of
the concept of reference and the act of referring. Given the focus of
this journal, we would encourage authors to emphasize the
interrelation between mental (cognitive) and linguistic (semiotic)
activities involved in referring. Of particular interest are the
following topics (although other topics related to reference will be
considered as well):

*	Reference and joint attention.
*	The cognitive development of referring skills.
*	Attentional states in computational models of discourse.
*	Computational and other models of the speech act of referring
*	Implications of the philosophical debate about reference for the
cognitive sciences.
*	Reference and institutional facts.

We especially welcome studies that bring considerations from two or more
cognitive disciplines to bear on the topic of reference.

Papers should be submitted strictly following the journal's Guidelines

ABOUT PRAGMATICS & COGNITION:

Pragmatics & Cognition's basic assumption is that the proper
understanding of mental life and inter-personal relations requires an
intensive and thoughtful exchange of views across disciplines.
Pragmatics & Cognition is designed for those seeking to widen their
perspective through such an exchange.
