    Matthews' measurement-theoretic account provides a more plausible view of the explanatorily relevant properties of propositional attitudes, the semantics of propositional attitude attributions, and the role of such attributions in computational cognitive scientific theorizing. Default Semantics Foundations of a Compositional Theory of Acts of Communication K. M. Jaszczolt. In this pioneering book Kasia Jaszczolt lays down the foundations of an original theory of meaning in discourse, reveals the cognitive foundations of discourse interpretation, and puts forward a new basis for the analysis of discourse processing.

    This book shows that the semantic analysis of modal notions of possibility and necessity can be used to enhance our understanding of the interpretation of reports of belief or emotional state. It introduces intuitive notation and terminology to express ideas in modern theories of modal interpretation that are normally represented in complex logical formulas, effectively updates the s-era. This book makes a stimulating contribution to the philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. It begins with a spirited defence of the view that propositions are structured and that propositional structure is 'psychologically real'. The author then develops a subtle view of propositions and attitude .

    Merger representations for these readings are provided in the amended language of Discourse Representation Theory that is used in my Default Semantics framework (e.g. Jaszczolt, Default semantics: foundations of a compositional theory of acts of communication.

The Pragmatics of Propositional Attitude Reports (Current Research in the Semantics Pragmatics Interface) Kasia Jaszczolt This volume, the fourth in the "CRiSPI" series, is a collection of nine papers dealing with the topic of reporting on beliefs and other attitudes, and in particular with the issue of the semantics-pragmatics boundary dispute.

Jaszczolt: BooksCited by: "The Pragmatics of Propositional Attitude Reports" published on 08 Mar by by: semantic analysis of propositionalattitude reports will highlightbasic assumptions behind ordinary “folk psychology”. Goals The aim of the present work is to give an account of the semantics of propositional attitude reports in terms of their truth conditions.

The approach is one that favours. propositional attitude reports. An overview of different kinds of propositional and other conceptual attitude report constructions in English is given and it is suggested how the framework proposed can be applied to them.

KEY WORDS: Meaning, Semantics, Logic, Propositional Attitudes, Truth Conditions, Intentions, Concepts, Reference. Having a successful theory of propositional attitude reports is important, as they serve as a converging point for a number of different fields, including philosophy of language, natural language semantics, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and epistemology.

Frege’s puzzle concerning belief reports has been in the middle of the discussion on semantics and pragmatics of attitude reports: The intuition behind the opacity does not seem to be consistent with the thesis of semantic innocence according to which the semantic value of proper names is nothing but their referent.

Main tasks of this book include providing truth-conditional content of. Propositional attitude verb syntax and semantics In this section, we present a brief overview of the literature on the syntax and seman-tics of propositional attitude verbs.

Each subsection corresponds to a semantic property we attempt to predict in Section. This book pursues a novel semantics of attitude reports and modal sentences based on the notion of an attitudinal or modal object and its truthmakers.

Keywords propositions propositional attitudes modality Twardowski. Propositional attitude verbs are opacity inducing.

That is, they seem to create linguistic environments that do not permit substitution of co-designating singular terms salva veritate. This is the basis of Frege’s puzzle.

Modals like ‘it is necessary that’ and ‘it is possible that’ are also opacity inducing. The book offers an original theory of meaning in discourse that combines a dynamic representation of discourse with an intentional explanation of processing.

propositional attitude reports. A propositional attitude is a mental state held by an agent toward a proposition. Linguistically, propositional attitudes are denoted by a verb (e.g.

"believed") governing an embedded "that" clause, for example, 'Sally believed that she had won'. Propositional attitudes are often assumed to be the fundamental units of thought and their contents, being propositions, are true or false from the.

PROPOSITIONAL ATTITUDES: ISSUES IN SEMANTICS Propositional attitudes like knowledge, belief, and assertion play an important foundational role for semantic theory, the goal of which is to specify the meanings of sentences and their semantic contents relative to contexts of utterance.
