• Ling-F: Issues in Formal Semantics: from Expressives to Emojis

    (Patrick Georg Grosz, University of Oslo and Daniel Gutzmann, University of Cologne)

    The first 3 sessions will be on the semantics of expressives/expressivity, taught by Daniel
    Gutzmann.

    The second 3 sessions will be on the semantics of emojis, taught by Patrick
    Georg Grosz.

    Bcakground expectations:  Even though most parts of this class will assume only knowledge of basic concepts of semantics and pragmatics, we will also deal a bit with formal semantic analysis for which a basic background in formal semantics would be beneficial.
