Hybrid Evaluatives: In Defense of a Presuppositional Account

Grazer Philosophische Studien 93 (3):458-488 (2016)

Abstract

In this paper, the authors present a presuppositional account for a class of evaluative terms that encode both a descriptive and an evaluative component: slurs and thick terms. The authors discuss several issues related to the hybrid nature of these terms, such as their projective behavior, the ways in which one may reject their evaluative content, and the ways in which evaluative content is entailed or implicated (as the case may be) by the use of such terms.
