Loose talk, negation and commutativity: A hybrid static-dynamic theory
AbstractThis paper investigates the interaction of phenomena associated with loose talk with embedded contexts. §1 introduces core features associated with the loose interpretation of an utterance and presents a sketch of how to theorise about such utterances in terms of a relation of ‘pragmatic equivalence’. §2 discusses further features of loose talk arising from interaction with ‘loose talk regulators’, negation and conjunction. §§3-4 introduce a hybrid static/dynamic framework and show how it can be employed in developing a fragment which accounts for the data surveyed in §§1-2.
