Abstract:

This volume presents an exploration of a wide variety of new formal methods
from computer science, biology and economics that have been applied to
problems in semantics and pragmatics in recent years. Many of the
contributions included focus on data from East Asian languages, particularly
Japanese and Korean. The collection reflects on a range of new empirical
issues that have arisen, including issues related to preference,
evidentiality, and attention. Separated into several sections, the book
presents discussions on: information structure, speech acts and decisions,
philosophical themes in semantics, and new formal approaches to semantic and
pragmatic theory. Its overarching theme is the relation between different
kinds of content, from a variety of perspectives. The discussions presented
are both theoretically innovative and empirically motivated.
