Dans le cadre du programme "New Ideas in Mathematical Philosophy" (Institut
d'Etudes Cognitives) et en partenariat avec l'équipe Linguae

Dag Westerståhl (Stockholm):
'Saussurean compositionality'

Mardi 14 octobre
14h-16h
salle de séminaire du DEC (RdC 29, bâtiment principal)

*Abstract*
A recent trend in semantics, with roots going back to de Saussure, have grammars generate form and content at the same time: sign-based grammars. Some see this format as merely implementing the basic idea of ('direct')
compositionality. In the talk I investigate how notions of compositionality
for sign-based grammars relate to compositionality in a classical setting
where the grammar generating the syntax is separate from the assignment of
meaning. One conclusion is that the two approaches are not mere notational
variants of each other; another that the sign-based version, in addition to
providing a more natural account of ambiguity and synonymy, is a more
friendly habitat for rules that are computable but not strictly
compositional.
