Reading Passages For The Course Of Semantics: Tests For Students
Linguistics. WP BRP. НИУ ВШЭ , 2014. No. WP BRP 08/LNG/2014.
The objective of this paper is to present and describe a teaching tool for linguistics students who are learning English, a tool which furthers their linguistic education at the same time as it gives them some challenging experience with reading practice with the kinds of tests they will encounter in the main international English language examinations, mainly, IELTS and TOEFL, and with English academic writing. The selected reading material introduces the foundations of formal semantics through a set of extracts from the works of classical semanticists of the 20th century, accompanied by a set of test-type questions for each of the reading passages. The comments after each test outline the characteristic features of test types presented. The importance of advancement in students’ reading potential is highlighted as crucial for their academic life in general and for their overall performance in English.

The present paper discusses the ideas presented in Paul Grice’s groundbreaking paper ‘Meaning’ published in 1957. The ideas are examined in the perspective of Grice’s mature, complete and elaborate approach to language. The following tenets are indicated as the main features of that approach: (1) though meaning and use are closely connected, they should not ...

Traditionally, ontology engineering is based on the presumption that the meaning of a proposition results from the combination of the meaning of its elements (concepts) and its syntactical structure. The reach of this "principle of compositionality" is, however, a contested topic in semantics. Its opponents defend the primacy of propositional meaning and derive the meaning ...

This monograph studies English words denoting a human being in modern English. Contemporary research methods and techniques enabled us to comprehensively analyse semantic and discourse features of the lexical units and to reconstruct the conceptual structures that uderlie these language features. Analysing well-established and new words revealed the different conceptual components that became the basis ...

Following a recent discussion in Fox and Spector 2018, this paper provides an argument for a particular view of the theory of scalar implicatures and exhaustification where exhaustification is only allowed if it alters the overall sentence meaning without weakening it. I show that this idea is helpful to make sense of the so-called dependent plural imterpreta tions, addressed ...

Truth of Taste: The Depth of Relativism / Basic Research Programme. Series HUM "Humanities". 2015. No. WP BRP 102/HUM/2015 .
Three relativistic semantic theories were suggested for the statements of taste: indexicalism, propositional relativism and factual relativism. Comparing and contrasting these possible solutions, I invoke three problems Max Kolbel formulates and focus on the problem of disagreement. I challenge Iris Einheuser's theory and claim that while indexical approach underestimates the problem of disagreement, factual relativism ...

Uncontroversially, the meaning of first and second person pronouns and “imposters”, i.e. expressions like yours truly, (Collins and Postal 2012), should be indexical (Kaplan 1977/1989, Stalnaker 1970), but how exactly this indexicality is achieved has been a matter of some debate. While not settling the debate, this paper aims to show that there is no ...

Previous clinical research has shown a positive effect of instrumentality on verb retrieval in individuals with aphasia. Performance on instrumental verbs incorporating an obligatory tool into their conceptual representation (e.g., to cut) is more accurate compared to non-instrumental verbs (e.g., to tear), possibly due to more specific conceptual representations of instrumental verbs. Seeking the neural correlates of ...

No study of meaning is possible without recourse to knowledge. In this context, semantics should first at all define what particular type of knowledge should be used in interpretation - an objectified in public practice taxonomic knowledge or alternatively opinions and views, witch are not always reliable. Obviously we would not be able to find ...
