Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language; Semantics 

Meeting Description: 

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. More generally, one of the main goals is to reach some insight into the way in which grammar encodes logical properties and relations.
