Workshop: Metarepresentation and non-literal language use

Verbal communication is full of uses of language which are non-literal: metaphor, metonymy, over- and understatement, sarcasm, irony, pretence and the presentation of points of view other than our own. A basic capacity for metarepresentation underlies all our communicative acts and in this workshop we explore the extent to which non-literal language use requires higher levels of metarepresentation.

Time and place: Jun 15, 2009 09:00 am to Jun 16, 2009 05:00 pm, Seminarrom 454, P.A. Munchs hus, Oslo
