Presupposition Workshop at ESSLLI 09 in Bordeaux

Presupposition Workshop
at The European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI)
in Bordeaux


We invite submission of abstracts from linguists, philosophers, and
cognitive scientists, addressing formal or foundational issues about
theories of presupposition, or offering new empirical perspectives
that bear on them. We especially encourage papers that address
questions about the explanatory depth of different theories or the
triggering problem, or introduce new forms of experimental or
empirical evidence relevant to adjudicating between theories of
presupposition.

Organizers:
- Nathan Klinedinst (UCL)
- Daniel Rothschild (Columbia)

Invited Speakers:
- Hans Kamp (Stuttgart)
- Philippe Schlenker (Institut Jean Nicod/NYU)
