  • Title: semantics etc.
    Descriptive info: .. semantics etc.. About.. Archives.. Work.. Plans.. von.. Up-goer five semantics.. Jan 19.. th.. , 2013.. semantics.. A couple of months ago, Randall Munroe s xkcd web comic explained the design of the Saturn V rocket using only the thousand most common words of English:.. the Up Goer Five explained using only the ten hundred words people use the most often.. Explaining hard things in simple language has now become.. an internet meme.. Just this morning, I found Walton Jones explaining his lab s work on the genetics and neuroscience of olfaction in Drosophila:.. We are interested in how little animals with six legs smell things.. There is.. a tumblr blog.. with many of these summaries.. The.. Up-Goer Five Text Editor.. makes it easy to experiment with writing down your research in the ten hundred most used words.. Here s an attempt at an up-goer five abstract for my upcoming colloquium talk at McGill ( Hedging your ifs and vice versa , joint work with Thony Gillies):.. How does the word if help things we say mean what they mean? It can work together with other words like maybe and probably to make things we say less strong.. But how does it do that?.. Many people have tried to find out how this works, but we will show that they face a big problem when one looks at people talking to each other and pointing to things the other said.. Can we do better?.. There are some obstacles for a linguist.. You often need to mention linguistic expressions that you work on.. I was lucky that.. if.. ,.. maybe.. , and.. probably.. are licit.. On the other hand, sentence is not allowed.. Related.. : George Boolos classic exploit.. Gödel s Second Incompleteness Theorem Explained in Words of One Syllable.. Statement on Aaron Swartz.. Jan 14.. We are deeply saddened by Aaron Swartz s death, and send our condolences to all who knew him.. We are very mindful of his commitment to the open access movement.. It inspires our own commitment to work for a situation where academic knowledge is freely available, so that others are not menaced by the kind of prosecution that he faced.. We encourage everyone to visit.. www.. rememberaaronsw.. com.. , a memorial site created by Aaron s family and friends.. Scott Aaronson.. Sasha Costanza-Chock.. Ellen Finnie Duranceau.. Kai von Fintel.. Richard Holton.. George Stephanopoulos.. Anne Whiston Spirn.. Members of the MIT Open Access Working Group.. [cross-posted from the.. OA Working Group wiki.. and.. Scott Aaronson s blog.. ].. S P acquired by LSA.. Jan 3.. rd.. [Crossposted from.. S P Editors Blog.. We are excited to share good news about the future of.. S P.. We have been working with the LSA on moving.. out of its current incubating stage to the next level with fuller support.. This morning, the LSA Executive Committee unanimously approved an agreement to that effect.. As of today,.. is a full-fledged LSA journal, alongside.. Language.. but independent of it.. The LSA will join MIT and the University of Texas in providing financial support to the journal.. In return,.. is to become a journal owned by the LSA and titled Semantics and Pragmatics with the subtitle A Journal of the Linguistic Society of America.. The day-to-day operations of the journal will not change.. The current editorial team will stay in place.. The policies and procedures, including the open access nature of the journal, will remain as they are.. Big decisions will be made cooperatively by the LSA Executive Committee, the editors, and the.. advisory committee.. Both the LSA and the.. team are excited about this partnership.. Open access is the future of scholarly communication and we intend to work together to make.. the best journal in its field and a model for our discipline and others.. An S P underground classic.. Dec 19.. , 2012.. [Crossposted from the.. :].. Semantics Pragmatics.. today published an underground classic, Craige Roberts famous paper.. Information structure in discourse: Towards an integrated formal theory of pragmatics.. , which had previously been published in a volume of OSU Working Papers in Linguistics, and then circulated in a slighly edited manuscript form, but was never officially published.. With the help of Anders Schoubye, Chris Brown, and Justin Cope, the old manuscript was transformed into LaTeX and formatted for the S P stylesheet.. Craige wrote.. a new afterword.. and prepared.. an annotated bibliography.. , which is linked from the afterword.. We re proud to be able to make this classic paper and the supplementary material available in an official publication.. Reissuing underground classics is a worthwhile undertaking, we believe.. Some famous examples are David Kaplan s Demonstratives published in.. Themes from Kaplan.. Kripke on presupposition.. published in.. Linguistic Inquiry.. , and in a sense also Grice s William James Lectures.. There was also volume 7 of the series Syntax and Semantics entitled Notes from the linguistic underground (edited by Jim McCawley in 1976), featuring famous papers such as Karttunen s Discourse referents and gems like Why you can t do so into the sink by Lakoff Ross.. So, we are continuing a respectable tradition.. Question for our audience: which other underground classics in semantics and pragmatics should S P consider publishing? You can email us at.. , comment on our.. Facebook page.. or our.. Google+ page.. , tweet (cc ing.. @semprag.. ), or leave a comment  ...   follows: I wish for you to remove this content, including my personal information, as it reflects negatively on the branding of Cestagi.. I do not intend to take this down nor to revise its cautionary tone unless and until the spammy character of the enterprise is cleaned up.. I fail to see why this individual would not want his personal information to be associated with his own project, unless, of course, the project is not one that he can be proud of.. In the mean time, another MIT affiliate reports receiving an email touting Cestagi, this one from John Merlocke , another name that does not turn up anything via Google search, except a shell Google+ profile.. So, the spamming campaign from made-up people does seem to be continuing.. [I do wonder which fake name generator is being used to make up these names.. ].. One more update (2013-01-29).. : Word now that the spam/phishing campaign definitely continues unabated.. Researchers at the United States Geological Survey have been receiving identical emails touting Cestagi from someone called Stacy Ferando (again a name that yields no Google hits other than a shell Google+ profile).. The template that the campaign currently uses is this:.. Dear $X,.. I noticed you have an outdated curriculum vitae web page.. You should keep it up-to-date while working at $Y.. You may want to take advantage of Cestagi to create and maintain a curriculum vitae following academic regulations and best practices:.. Please let others know about this free platform.. I believe it will be of great benefit to everyone.. Warm regards,.. $FAKE-NAME.. Needless to say, my correspondents do not have outdated CVs.. Seminar on deontics, imperatives, and the like.. Sep 5.. Our fall semantics seminar at MIT will be a kind of super-seminar.. We will discuss current research on expressions of preference and priority, including deontic modals, imperatives, desiderative attitudes, and so on.. The seminar will feature several guest speakers (Ana Arregui, Fabrizio Cariani, Cleo Condoravdi, Thony Gillies, Magda Kaufmann, Dilip Ninan, perhaps more), some of whom will be semi-regular participants as well.. If you re in the Boston area, feel free to visit the seminar: Fridays 11-2 in Room 32-D461.. website for the class.. is openly accessible for people who would like to kibitz from afar.. ICL deadline this week.. Aug 25.. Abstracts for the Semantics Pragmatics session during next summer s.. International Congress of Linguists.. are due this coming week on September 1.. More info about our session:.. here.. URL for submissions (through the ICL website):.. cil19.. org/en/calls-for-papers/call/.. Guidelines for writing abstracts.. Aug 13.. Found via Facebook this morning:.. , drawn up a while ago by Johan Rooryck and Vincent van Heuven after consultation of the Linguist List.. I pretty much agree 100% with these guidelines, but about 200% with this one: Don t put your examples on a separate page, even when the abstract guidelines allow you to do so: abstract reviewers hate having to go back and forth between pages.. (This is a corollary of the same principle that banishes endnotes from academic publishing.. ).. app.. net.. Aug 12.. geek.. There s a nascent new social network,.. , which is trying a new approach.. It is user-supported rather than ad-supported.. Its users pay an annual fee and thus, unlike Facebook and Twitter, access to the users are not sold to the real customers, ad buying companies.. I use social networks for five purposes:.. connecting with family, neighbors, true friends acquaintances.. connecting with colleagues in linguistics philosophy.. connecting and following fellow computer geeks.. current awareness in science, politics, breaking news.. following celebrities in sports entertainment.. For the first purpose, Facebook is indispensable and even though I don t like the platform, I can t imagine abandoning it and giving up the connections I maintain through it.. The academic and geek networking happens a little bit through Facebook, a bit through Google+, and mostly through Twitter.. These purposes I could imagine moving to app.. net, since there s a professional aspect to it and thus the idea makes sense that one might pay a modest fee to have a spam-free well-lit environment for this kind of networking.. The last two purposes are almost exclusively happening on Twitter for me, but could just as well happen through RSS and email subscriptions (and listening to the radio and podcasts).. There s no lock-in here.. So, I can imagine that I d give up on Google+ and Twitter, and have my personal networking happening on Facebook and my professional networking on app.. net (I wish they would come up with a better name, though).. There was a Kickstarter-like start-up campaign to get app.. net some initial funding.. They reached their $500,000 goal this morning, perhaps not completely unconnected to the fact that Stephen Fry announced his support on Twitter.. I joined just now, partially to make sure I would be able to claim fintelkai as my username, not that anyone else would have a legitimate reason to get that name.. Obviously, social networks need critical mass (and Google+ seems to be an example of one that is not quite there yet).. So, the probabilities of success are somewhat low, but it s worth trying, I think.. The way Facebook and increasingly Twitter are treating their users to serve their real customers (and shareholders) is not nice.. Older.. Blog Archives.. Follow Kai:.. Twitter.. /.. Google+.. RSS..
