Journal of Semantics, special issue

A special issue entitled "PROCESSING MEANING" from the Journal of Semantics has just come out. It is edited by Julie Sedivy, Robyn Carston, Ira Noveck & Bart Geurts. More information to be found at: http://jos.oxfordjournals.org/current.dtl

The idea for the issue was initiated by Bart Geurts, Journal Editor, and it turned into a fun project.

Papers are from:
Giosué Baggio & Michiel Van Lambalgen (on the Imperfective Paradox),
Guy Politzer (Quantifer entailments),
Paula Rubio Fernandez (on metaphor), and
Florian Schwartz (on presupposed content).
