Book Description

Whereas the relationship between truth and propositional content has already been intensively investigated, there are only very few studies devoted to the task of illuminating the relationship between truth and illocutionary acts. This book fills that gap.

This innovative collection addresses such themes as:

  • the relation between the concept of truth and the success conditions of assertions and kindred speech acts
  • the linguistic devices of expressing the truth of a proposition
  • the relation between predication and truth.
