Abstract

There has been much philosophical interest in the role of luck in ethics and epistemology; now this volume brings the topic to the fore in philosophy of language. Eleven new essays explore the diversity, scope, and mode of operation of luck-reducing mechanisms in language, without which linguistic communication would be impossible.
