Indexical Predicates

Mind and Language 24 (4):467-493 (2009)
Abstract
We discuss the challenge to truth-conditional semantics presented by apparent shifts in extension of predicates such as ‘red’. We propose an explicit indexical semantics for ‘red’ and argue that our account is preferable to the alternatives on conceptual and empirical grounds.
Keywords philpapers: predicates and context-dependence
