SSPI Reading Group @ Trinity College Dublin (New!)

The Syntax, Semantics, and Pragmatics Interfaces Reading Group organised by Valentina Colasanti, Elaine Uí Dhonnchadha, and John Saeed will be meeting Thursdays 13:00-14:00 in room 4050B, Arts Building, Trinity College on the following dates (put them in your diary!)

  • 13 February 
  • 12 March (postponed)
  • 26 March (postponed)

In each meeting we will discuss a paper in a student-friendly and informal environment. The only requirement is being interested in syntax, and/or semantics, and/or pragmatics, and/or their interfaces (e.g. syntax-pragmatics interface, syntax-semantics interface, and semantics-pragmatics interface, etc.).  So, if you’re interested just join us!

We’ll be starting next Thursday 13 February with the following paper:

Genovesi, C. (2019). Metaphor and what is meant: Metaphorical content, what is said, and contextualism. Journal of Pragmatics157, 17-38.
