When Offered: Last offered spring 2017.
Instructor(s): M. Landman.
Credit: 1

Language users manage to communicate complex thoughts and ideas within rapidly changing and evolving contexts, often with incredible ease. How are we able to locate linguistic meanings in such rich and elusive contexts? What is the relationship between the meaning of a word or expression and its linguistic form? What are the rules or processes that determine how more complex meanings are created from their parts, and how do these processes relate to other cognitive or mental processes? This course introduces both theoretical and practical tools to build an abstract theory of linguistic meaning that addresses these questions, among others. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: LGCS010 PO or CSCI030 PO.
This course has been revised for spring 2017.
