Articles gathered in the volume focus on traditional and contemporary debates within the philosophy of language, and on the interfaces between linguistics, philosophy, and logic. The topics of individual contributions cover such diverse issues as analytic accounts of the a priori and implicit definitions, medieval and contemporary theories of fallacy, game-theoretical semantics, modal games in natural language and literary semantics, possible-world theories and paradoxes involving structured propositions, extensions to Dynamic Syntax, semantics of proper names, judgement-dependence, tacit knowledge and linguistic understanding, ontology in semantics, implicit knowledge and theory of meaning, and many more. The multitude of topics shows that the convergence of linguistic, philosophical, formal, and cognitive approaches opens new research perspectives within contemporary philosophy of language and linguistics.

The volume includes contributions by (among other authors): Luis Fern ndez Moreno (Madrid), Chris Fox (Essex), Ruth Kempson (London), Alexander Miller (Birmingham), Arthur Sullivan (Newfoundland), Mieszko Talasiewicz (Warsaw).
