Judging Plausible Deniability

Project description

Assessing plausible deniability

In linguistics, plausible deniability (PD) is the strategic expression of information to avoid the consequences of expressing meaning more directly. This commonly used avoidance strategy actually entails a highly complex interplay of philosophical, cognitive, social, and linguistic components, which explains why PD remains largely understudied. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) PlauDe project will develop an all-inclusive theoretical framework designed to unravel PD mechanisms. Unlike previous studies, PlauDe will create a computational model which evaluates PD within a context that includes potential judgment. The model will also offer quantitative accuracy and the creation of predictions to be experimentally tested. The study will culminate in a workshop for those who are susceptible to PD in their undertakings.
