This course introduces some basic notions related to meaning (i.e. what meaning is). The primary focus will be on word meaning and some aspects of sentential meaning. Interpersonal meaning (pragmatics) will be introduced briefly so that students can get an overview of the scope of meaning.

Some questions students will be presented are: What is the difference between speaker meaning and sentence meaning? What is the difference between sense and reference? What are sense relations and sense properties? What is the difference between sentences and utterances? What kinds of basic elements do we need to make reference to in characterizing the meanings of words or other linguistic units?
