Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Thought-Contents
Subtitle: On the Ontology of Belief and the Semantics of Belief Attribution
Written By: Steven E. Boër
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-5084-8
Series Title: Philosophical Studies Series
Description:

This book provides a formal ontology of senses and the belief-relation that
grounds the distinction between de dicto, de re, and de se beliefs as well
as the opacity of belief reports. According to this ontology, the relata of
the belief-relation are an agent and a special sort of object-dependent
sense (a "thought-content"), the latter being an "abstract" property
encoding various syntactic and semantic constraints on sentences of a
language of thought.
