Programme

Vendredi 21 octobre 2011

Prashant Parikh (University of Pennsylvania) : Computing Modulations

Abstract: Modulated meanings and lexical pragmatics have been at the center of recent inquiry. I will show how, using my framework of equilibrium linguistics, it is possible to derive such meanings from first principles. In so doing, I will argue that what semantics and pragmatics have in common - the ubiquity of context - outweighs their differences and so the two should be unified into a single field.

Dans le cadre du colloquium du DEC et du séminaire général de l'IJN

Vendredi 28 octobre 2011

Charles Spence (Departement of Psychology, Oxford), “Beyond space and time in audiovisual multisensory integration"

Vendredi 4 novembre 2011

EXCEPTIONELLEMENT EN SALLE CAVAILLES dans le cadre des Conférences SIGMA 2011 / as part of the 2011 SIGMA Lectures

Klaus Zuberbühler (University of St Andrews), Title : TBA

Vendredi 18 novembre 2011 de 11h à 13h

Frank Veltman (University of Amsterdam), "Imperatives at the borderline of semantics and pragmatics"

Abstract:
I have been giving talks with this title since 2005, mostly focussing on matters of free choice. This time I will apply the theory developed so far to sentences composed of both an imperative and a declarative sentence (sometimes called pseudo-imperatives) and to a variant of the Miner's Paradox.

Jeudi 1er décembre 2011 de 11h à 13h

John Woods (University of British Columbia) "The semantics of fiction: Recent developments"

Vendredi 9 décembre 2011 de 11h à 13h

Kathleen Stock (university of Sussex, Brighton), "Imagining-that and imagining-of"

Abstract: In this talk, I will examine the basis of the commonly made distinction between imagining-that and imagining-of. I will consider to what extent it is properly characterised as the distinction between: propositional and non-propositional imagining; general and singular imagining; imagining which can occur without imagery, and that which cannot. In the course of the paper, I will reject Amy Kind's arguments that all imagination involves imagery.
