> Celebrates the work of renowned philosopher of language Ernie Lepore
Are natural languages genuinely compositional? What roles does context play

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.
