3rd CALL FOR PAPERS: Inquisitiveness, 19-21 Dec 2011, THE NETHERLANDS

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

- A workshop about inquisitiveness in semantics, pragmatics, and logic. Hosted by the Amsterdam Colloquium, Amsterdam (The Netherlands) -*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 ininquisitiveness 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.
