Bart Geurts to Give a lecture on Common Salience

Bart Geurts, whose research interests cover formal semantics and pragmatics, philosophy of language, and psycholinguistics will deliver a lecture on October 29. The lecture is open to a wide audience.
Bart Geurts
is a Professor at Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands).

Abstract

Despite the fact that the notion of salience plays an important part in pragmatics, it is usually taken as a primitive, and not analysed in any depth. I propose to distinguish between subjective and common salience, and argue that the second notion, not the first, is relevant for pragmatic theory, and especially for the analysis of referential expressions of various types, including pronouns, names, and definite descriptions. This raises the question what common salience is, and how it relates to subjective salience, and most of my talk will be about these issues.

The lecture starts at 18:00 and is held at Staraya Basmannaya 21/4, room 501.
