Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Psycholinguistics; Semantics

Meeting Description: 

Semantic theory in the Montagovean tradition mainly relies on speakers'
judgments on the meaning and use of linguistic expressions. In recent years
there has been considerable increase of interest in empirical data that go
beyond intuitive judgments and include data resulting from experiments
investigating the production and comprehension of linguistic utterances. The aim
of the workshop is to clarify the role of empirical evidence in the
investigation of the semantics of natural languages.
