Quotation: Compositionality And Innocence Without Demonstration, Andrew Botterell, Robert J. Stainton Jul 2005

Quotation: Compositionality And Innocence Without Demonstration, Andrew Botterell, Robert J. Stainton

Robert J. Stainton

We discuss two kinds of quotation, namely indirect quotation (e.g., 'Anita said that Mexico is beautiful') and pure quotation (e.g., 'Mexico' has six letters). With respect to each, we have both a negative and a positive plaint. The negative plaint is that the strict Davidsonian (1968, 1979a) treatment of indirect and pure quotation cannot be correct. The positive plaint is an alternative account of how quotation of these two sorts works.
