Meeting Description:

This International Seminar on 'Interdisciplinary Perspective on Semantics' aims at having the discussion on how the logical form (LF)works in regard to the complexities of Indian languages and what exactly full interpretations (FI)means for us. It invites papers on the scope of quantifiers, negation and adverbials in Indian languages. It welcomes papers on truth value semantics and how presupposition, entailment and logical implications work in our languages. It also invites papers on pragmatic implicatures keeping in view the maxims of H.P.Grice and later developments involving the concept of relevance. It also welcomes papers on the application of Indian or Arabic theory of semantics with reference to modern languages.
