Abstract:

This volume presents eight papers and a draft monograph by T. Price Caldwell
on topics in linguistics, semiotics and philosophy of language.

>From the beginning of his professional career onwards, Caldwell wrote short
fiction and poetry, and he taught English literature. The relevance to these
of philosophy of language, semiotics and certain areas of linguistics
increasingly caught his interest. This book presents the fruits of this later
work.

Of the papers included here, two are abstract and theoretical, focusing on
linguistic methodology and Caldwell’s overarching views on the nature of
meaning-in-context. His position here, which he called Molecular Sememics,
echoes early Structuralism and Functionalism, but addresses shortfalls in
each. Two other papers apply the method and theory to topics within semantics
and pragmatics, including especially the structuring of discourse. The
remaining four papers connect Caldwell’s theoretical insights to his life-long
interests in fiction and pedagogy.

The monograph – which Caldwell was left unfinished due to illness – aims to
present as a single intellectual package the theory and the applications.
