Logicality, Lexical Meaning and Semantic Invariance

25 June 2013, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

workshop description

The workshop aims at connecting two debates from two different disciplines: the debate over logical constants in philosophy of logic and the debate on the functional vs. lexical distinction in linguistics. It further aims at examining the notion of semantic invariance, both as used by logicians (namely, as a criterion for logicality) and by linguists and philosophers of language in discussions of semantics. One of its main goals will be to reach some insight into the way in which grammar encodes logical properties and relations. The workshop is part of the project on Lexical Meaning and Logical inference, funded from European Commission’s Marie Curie Actions <http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/>  and conducted by Isidora Stojanovic.
