1-2 June 2007, PALMYR-V : Dynamic Perspectives on Meaning, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris

Date: 1-2 June 2007
Location: Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris

Since the inception of linguistics, the mainstream of researchers considered language as a static system. The situation has changed dramatically over the last few decades as the interests of the scientific community shifted from studying meaning to studying the processes behind the production and comprehension of utterances. This dynamic turn gave a much wider perspective on meaning in the framework of formal semantics and opened the door for new mathematical tools in the conceptual foundations of linguistics. Modal logic, computability theory, game theory and many others have become standard tools for formal semanticists.

PALMYR V will bring together young researchers interested in these dynamic perspectives on language and meaning.
