Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Approaches to Meaning: Composition, Values, and Interpretation contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of contributors. The book investigates the phenomenon that different syntactic occurrences of one and the same (pure) indexical in an utterance may refer to different objects even though there is no change of context. It develops the notion of occurrence-dependence which accounts for this behavior. The book discusses two frameworks: token-reflexive semantics and occurrence-interpretation and discusses assumptions for their equivalence. Finally, it presents a compact study of a new kind of tautology the meaning of which has to be found beyond its trivial truth-conditional content and hence also involves the re-interpretation of the semantic values at the interface.

Keywords: occurrence-interpretation; token-reflexive semantics
