Primary Instructor:

This course introduces the linguistic study of meaning in three parts. First, we will develop a formal system for deriving the truth-conditional meanings of sentences describing the real world, like Every boy likes a girl. Next, we will add to our system the machinery necessary for capturing the meanings of sentences about imagined or possible worlds, such as Every boy thinks he is the top student and John might like Sally. Last, we will examine how a sentence's meaning can change depending on the context in which it is used.
