Date: 18-Sep-2015 - 18-Sep-2015
Location: Cambridge, United Kingdom

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Philosophy of Language; Pragmatics; Semantics 

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2014 

Meeting Description:

Referring to the self can be achieved in a variety of ways, including
first-person pronouns, impersonal forms, reflexives, proper names, common
nouns, and other types of expressions. While philosophers of language normally
discuss first-person reference in terms of the indexical/nonindexical
distinction, and in the case of belief reports, the de se/de re distinction,
linguists point out the overwhelming variety of forms languages employ for
this purpose (viz. 51 forms for ā€˜Iā€™ in Japanese, 27 in Thai). Firstly,
honorifics for the first person (e.g. in Thai, Korean, or Vietnamese) enable
the speaker to refer to herself not in an immediately-given way. Secondly, in
languages such as Amharic and Chinese, first-person pronouns can be used to
attribute the immediate access to oneself to a third party.

Call for Papers:

We invite talks on both the linguistic and philosophical aspects of self-referring, aiming at a cross-disciplinary discussion that will inform both disciplines.
