Context shifting in questions and elsewhere

  • Eric McCready

Abstract

It has been shown that context shifting takes place within propositional attitudes. This paper argues that there are other environments where context shift takes place, specifically in questions and in the scope of modal and evidential operators. It is argued that the shift that takes place is a shift in the judge, the individual who determines truth and falsity (of non-objective content). The shift is analyzed in terms of monstrous operators.
