Modalizing commitment space semantics

  • Marvin Schmitt

Abstract

This article discusses short-comings of commitment space semantics as introduced in Krifka (2015) with respect to assertions, confirmations, and contradictions. It proposes to transform commitment space semantics to a modal logical framework which allows not only for an elegant solution of these issues, but also for the accommodation of other phenomena central to any comprehensive model of human communication (this really being the main point behind going modal).
