25 June 2013, Logicality, Lexical Meaning and Semantic Invariance, Barcelona, Spain

Date: Tuesday 25 June 2013
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Deadline: 13 April 2013

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 the main goals of the workshop is to examine whether the distinction between logical vs. non-logical expressions maps onto the
distinction between functional vs. lexical (or 'substantive') categories.

The workshop organizers invite papers for 40 min talks, followed by 20 min discussion, from areas of linguistics, philosophy of language and logic that address the issues presented in the workshop description. Submission deadline: 13 April 2013.
