Truth and Context Sensitivity
Discusses the modifications that have to be made to a truth theory for a context insensitive language to adapt it to a context sensitive language, that is, a language that contains terms like ‘I’, ‘here’, ‘now’, and so on, and tense inflection, whose contributions to what sentences mean in a context of use depend upon features of the context. Shows how to relativize the axioms of the theory to contextual parameters, and how to modify Tarski’s Convention T for a truth predicate which is relativized to contextual parameters.
