This book presents papers in honor of Jerry Sadock’s rich legacy in pragmatics and Autolexical Grammar. Highlights of the pragmatics section include Larry Horn on almost, barely, and assertoric inertia; William Lycan on Sadock’s resolution of the Performadox with truth1 and truth2; and Jay Atlas on Moore’s Paradox and the truth value of propositions of belief. Highlights of the Autolexical Grammar section include Fritz Newmeyer’s comparison of the minimalist, autolexical, and transformational treatments of English nominals; Barbara Abott’s extension of Sadock’s PRO-less syntax to a PRO-less semantics of the infinitival complements of know how; and Haj Ross’s syntactic connections between semantically related English pseudoclefts. Encompassing a range of languages (Aleut, Bangla, Greenlandic, Japanese, and a home-based sign language) and extending into psycholinguistics (language acquisition, sentence processing, and autism) this volume will interest a range of readers, from theoretical linguists and philosophers of language to applied linguists and exotic language specialists.
