Speaker: Thomas Ede Zimmermann (Frankfurt)
Title: On the ontological status of semantic values
Date:
Time: 16:00 - 17:30
Location: ILLC Meeting Room F1.15
The following three theses will be defended, and connections between them will be established:
1. Model-theoretic natural language semantics is not a theory of meaning.
2. Extensions ("generalized“ quantifiers, truth values,…) must be distinguished from referents.
3. Intension must be distinguished from content.
