19-21 October 2007, International Conference on Quotation and Meaning (ICQM), Mainz, Germany

Date: 19-21 October 2007
Location: Mainz, Germany
Deadline: 15 June 2007

Quotation is a sort of metarepresentation that is found in all natural languages. Linguistic research has made clear that in quotation, there are complex syntactic, morphological and graphematic mechanisms at work. In philosophy of language, there are long-standing debates on quotation and paradoxes, on the use-mention distinction, and the meaning of quotation marks and quotation expressions. More recently, quotation has become a topic within the debate on the semantics/pragmatics distinction.

For more information, see http://www.zitatundbedeutung.uni-mainz.de/eng/icqm.php or contact Markus Steinbach at .

Since the aim of the conference is to bring together philosophers and linguists, we call for papers on all aspects of the conference topic, which will be anonymously reviewed by a reading committee. Call deadline: 15-June-2007.
