    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Martin Jönsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Natural Language Semantics; Linguistic Creativity; Compositionality; Productivity; Systematicity; Jerry Fodor; Semantic Theories; Meaning; Paul Horwich; Semantic Principles; Peter Pagin;

    Abstract : The goal of inquiry in this essay is to ascertain to what extent the Principle of Compositionality – the thesis that the meaning of a complex expression is determined by the meaning of its parts and its mode of composition – can be justifiably imposed as a constraint on semantic theories, and thereby provide information about what meanings are. Apart from the introduction (Chapter One) and the concluding chapter (Chapter Seven) the thesis is divided into five chapters addressing different questions pertaining to the overarching goal of inquiry.
