CALL FOR PAPERS: "Inquisitiveness", 19-21 Dec 2011, THE NETHERLANDS

https://sites.google.com/site/inquisitivesemantics/workshops/inquisitiveness-2011

Amsterdam (The Netherlands) -Hosted by the Amsterdam Colloquium

Invited speaker
Manfred Krifka ,
Humboldt-Universitt
zu Berlin

Call for papers Questions and answers are a major topic in semantics and pragmatics, and to some 
extent in logic and philosophy as well. This interest in inquisitiveness goes beyond the 
interpretation of questions as such. For example, questions are widely assumed to play a 
structural role in the analysis of discourse. Likewise, most theories on focus and the 
interpretation of intonation make a link with the question-answerhood relation. More radically it 
has been argued that a proper understanding of seemingly purely informative constructions, like 
disjunctions and conditionals, requires a notion of inquisitiveness as a basic ingredient of 
meaning. The main aim of this workshop is to investigate the significance of inquisitiveness for 
semantics, pragmatics, and logic.
