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.
