Semantics and the objects of assertion

Linguistics and Philosophy 33 (5):355-380 (2010)
Abstract
This paper is about the relationship between two questions: the question of what the objects of assertion are and the question of how best to theorise about ‘shifty’ phenomena like modality and tense. I argue that the relationship between these two questions is less direct than is often supposed. I then explore the consequences of this for a number of debates in the philosophy of language
