Coming to a doxastic agent

  • Jefferson Barlew


Fillmore (1975) proposes that using the English deictic motion verb come to describe a motion event is acceptable if some contextually given individual is present at the destination of the motion event. In this paper, I show that the individual must only believe herself to be located at the destination. I argue that the meaning of come thus includes a doxastic, modal component, and develop an analysis in the dynamic semantics of AnderBois et al. (2015).
