Comments: The role of attention in lexical semantics

Gärdenfors, Peter LU (2014) In Croatian Journal of Philosophy XIV(41). p.269-276
Abstract
I take up the roles of the world, the mind and the society in my semantic theory. I show how semantic differences between languages can be seen as attending to different parts of event structures. The role of the emotion domain in relation to the meaning of pejoratives is discussed. Finally, the idea that articles in language should be seen as an extension of pointing is shown to be congenial with my theory of semantics based on conceptual spaces.
