Truth and Semantics

Project description

Paving the way for a unified approach to truth and semantics

Self-referential sentences challenge the development of natural language semantics. These sentences refer to themselves, such as the famous liar sentence: ‘This sentence is not true’. This has been largely ignored by semanticists, who have left the field to philosophical logicians working on paradoxes such as the paradoxes of truth. Addressing this, the EU-funded TRUST project will offer a unified perspective on natural language semantics – truth-conditional semantics. The project will be the first systematic study of truth and natural language semantics from a combined perspective.
