Download or read book entitled The Philosophy of Linguistics by author: Jerrold J. Katz which was release on 20 September 1985 and published by Oxford University Press, USA with total page 259 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. In light of the sharp linguistic turn philosophy has taken in this century, this collection provides a much-needed and long-overdue reference for philosophical discussion. The first collection of its kind, it explores questions of the nature and existence of linguistic objects--including sentences and meanings--and considers the concept of truth in linguistics. The status of linguistics and the nature of language now take a central place in discussions of the nature of philosophy; the essays in this volume both inform these discussions and lay the groundwork for further examination.
