How Grammar Creates Meaning
Date: 8 August, 2018
Time: 2.00pm-3.00pm

Hear from Harvard Professor Gennaro Chierchia who is an Italian linguist and Haas Foundation Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Harvard University, USA. He is considered one of the world’s leading formal semanticists.

Humans communicate through language: verbal languages, or sign languages. How do words and sentences or gestures acquire meaning? One way to think about it is to view language as a labeling device: nouns are used as conventional labels for things (e.g., the English noun ‘table’ is a label for, well, tables) and verbs are labels for actions (e.g. ‘to break’ labels actions like demolishing, shattering, and the like); and in virtue of these conventional associations, sequences of words can be used to convey facts about the world, or to tell stories.
