Series Title: Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy
Description:

> Topic is absolutely central to contemporary philosophy of language
> Celebrates the work of renowned philosopher of language Ernie Lepore

Are natural languages genuinely compositional? What roles does context play
in linguistic communication, and by what means? In particular, does context
interfere with the compositional determination of truth conditions? What
meanings should theorists assign to sentences if compositionality is to be
retained? These are the central questions of this important volume of new
philosophical essays in honour of Ernie Lepore.
