As the title suggests, this book defends a minimal approach to doing semantics (also called "semantic minimalism") from a variety of theories that Borg calls "dual-pragmatic theories" (more commonly called "contextualisms").

A definite 5/5. The book is suitable for anyone with an interest or some background in Minimal Semantics book or linguistics.5/5(1).

Insensitive Semantics is a book about this debate, investigating the effects of context on communicative interaction and, as a corollary, what a context of utterance is and what it is to be in one.

The Borgian idea of minimal semantics and liberal truth conditions is an attempt to defend semantics from an overflow of pragmatic theories. An overflow that is to some extent necessary because of the need to cope with ‘unarticulated constituents’.Cited by: 4.

First, I aim to briefly outline the backbone of semantic minimalism, while focusing on the idea of ‘liberal truth conditions’ developed by Emma Borg in her book ‘Minimal Semantics’.Author: Izabela Skoczeń. Seeks to defend a formal (e.g.

truth-conditional) approach to semantic theorizing from advocates of so-called ‘dual pragmatics’ (e.g. relevance theorists or contextualists). I argue, first, that formal semantics is preferable to pragmatically saturated approaches since only formal accounts are compatible with a modularity view of linguistic understanding (a view which is itself, I suggest.

The empirical study of word meanings and sentence meanings in existing languages is a branch of linguistics; the abstract study of meaning in relation to language or symbolic logic systems is a branch of philosophy. Minimal Semantics asks what a theory of literal linguistic meaning is for.

Emma Borg argues for a minimal answer to this question, thereby defending so-called 'formal semantics' from some serious challenges. She argues that opponents confuse understanding of language with related skills, like.

This chapter spells out the precise claims of minimal semantics and the role it accords to context in semantic theorizing. It also recapitulates the claims made with respect to the modularity of linguistic understanding, arguing that grasp of literal linguistic meaning is a properly modular process while grasp of what is said by a speaker is a non-modular process (thus, communication is global.

Books shelved as semantics: Language in Thought and Action by S.I. Hayakawa, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): As the title of her book indicates, Emma Borg is a minimalist with regard to semantics and, like many minimalists, sees herself as defending her patch from the encroachments of the ‘contextualist hoards’.

She is, therefore, taking up a particular position within what is seen by many philosophers of language as a. A standard objection to so-called ‘minimal semantics’ (Borg, Cappelen and Lepore ) is that minimal contents are explanatorily redundant as they play no role in an adequate. In this paper we investigate minimal semantics for First Order Dynamic Logic formulas.

The goal is to be able to write action specifications in a declarative pre/post-condition style. The declarative specification of actions comes with some well known problems: the frame problem, the qualification problem and the ramification : Jan Broersen, Roelf J.

Wieringa. This book is the third in a three-volume set that celebrates the career and achievements of Cliff Goddard, a pioneer of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage approach in linguistics.

This third volume explores the potential of Minimal English, a recent offshoot of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage, with special reference to its use in Language.

This book offers new perspectives on the study of Chinese lexical semantics, as well as discourse analysis and cognitive pragmatics based on lexical semantics. The first part focuses on fundamental issues in lexical semantic research, while the second features articles highlighting various aspects of the lexical category systems in Chinese.

Minimal Semantics and Legal Interpretation Izabela Skoczen´1 Published online: 20 October The Author(s) This article is published with open access at Abstract In this paper I will tackle three issues.

First, I aim to briefly outline the backbone of semantic minimalism, while focusing on the idea of ‘liberal truth. What is insensitive semantics (or semantic minimalism. This may become clear in this chapter from Cappelen and Lepore's objections to their opponents. They signal two main opponents: moderate contextualists and radical contextualists.

This chapter presents the position of the latter. It argues that the former position collapses into the latter; Radical contextualism is incoherent, or Author: Charles Travis. Besides introducing us to the blobject, the point of the book is the [mind-dependent] connection between Horgan's ontology and the correctness of ordinary talk thanks to semantic context and indirect correspondence.

To my mind, Horgan fails to appreciate some of the implications of his ontology.4/5(1). This chapter explores the objection that minimal propositions are explanatorily inert. The objection has its clearest statement in the work of François Recanati and his requirement that semantic content satisfy his ‘Availability Principle’ (which requires semantic content to be intuitively available to interlocutors).

The parallels between this objection and an extant worry for Grice's. Minimal logic is a fragment of intuitionistic logic that rejects not only the classical law of excluded middle (as intuitionistic logic does), but also the principle of explosion (ex falso quodlibet).Essentially, from proof-theoretical viewpoint, this means that in minimal logic the bottom $\bot$ is considered as a propositional variable, without any special inference rule involving it.

Minimal recursion semantics (MRS) is a framework for computational can be implemented in typed feature structure formalisms such as head-driven phrase structure grammar and lexical functional is suitable for computational language parsing and natural language generation.

MRS enables a simple formulation of the grammatical constraints on lexical and phrasal semantics. This is an introductory coursebook to the fields of semantics and pragmatics, and partly to discourse analysis which is a distinct research topic of Linguistics I write this review after some time of finishing the book.

As a non-native speaker of English and a beginner in learning semantics, I have much enjoyed the book and the topic though it did take me some time to finish- even more time /5.

Based on research findings from cross-linguistic semantics, it contains essays and studies by leading experts exploring the value and application of ‘Minimal English’ in various fields, including ethics, health, human rights discourse, education and international relations. This book examines some recent answers to the questions of how and where to draw the divide between semantics (roughly, features of the literal meaning of linguistic items) and pragmatics (roughly, features emerging from the context within which such items are being used).

In particular, the book defends what is commonly known as ‘minimal semantics’ (aka ‘semantic invariantism’ or. Emma Borg examines the relation between semantics (roughly, features of the literal meaning of linguistic items) and pragmatics (features emerging from the context within which such items are being used), and assesses recent answers to the fundamental questions of how and where to draw the divide between the two.

Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, "significant") is the linguistic and philosophical study of meaning in language, programming languages, formal logics, and is concerned with the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for in reality, their denotation.

In the international scientific. This was the first Semantics text I read. I spent a lot of evenings and nights over the course of two semesters solving the problems from this book. During this time, Pavarotti, Bond and Loren settled into an endearing spot in my memory/5.

Current developments of the Minimalist Program in generative linguistics put the procedure of labeling syntactic objects at the center of the syntax–semantics transition. This book provides a discussion of consequences of such proposals for a proper analysis of different varieties of the operation Merge and their interpretive reflexes, as.
