Hi everyone!

                   First of all, just to tell you that enrolment for the test is already online via ESSE3. There will be a difference between frequentante /non- frequentante so be careful! that you did not go over the number of absences!!! or if you did you should have talked to me!

Then for those of you who will be going on with Lab 2 in the second semester, the test d’ingresso is on 14 February. Even if you do not intend taking the test but wish to attend lessons you need to enrol.

               Finally , have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

Hi there,

            Well, our lessons are coming to an end and we’ve almost finished the syllabus! So this week we looked again at the use of “have to/ must / don’t have to” BUT in the past tense.

HAD TO  is the

Past tense of must / have to

I wasn’t at the lesson yesterday because I had to go to the doctor!

Don’t forget

CAN/ CAN’T also express possibility/permission or not to do something!


Obligation (MUST/ HAVE TO) You MUST/HAVE TO eat 5 pieces of fruit a day. PROHIBITION MUSTN’T You MUSTN’T drink that water.
Rules (have to) In GB YOU HAVE TO drive on the left.    
Possibility/permission Can YOU CAN smoke here! PROHIBITIONCan’t You CAN’T smoke in here!
    NOT NECESSARYDON’T HAVE TO(DIDN’T HAVE TO) John DOESN’T HAVE TO get up tomorrow. It’s a holiday!
COULD When I was a child, I COULD eat anything I liked and  I never put on weight. COULDN’T  When I was a child I COULDN’T stay out all night!
HAD TO I wasn’t at school yesterday because I HAD TO go to the dentist!    


Then we had a look at relative pronouns.

WHO/THAT/WHICH  are relative pronouns.

I know a man. He can speak Japanese.   = I know a man WHO can speak Japanese.

WHO is used for people NOT things but you can say: (I know a man THAT can speak Japanese) (WHO is more frequent)

THAT is used for people and things

I have a watch. It is very old. =  I have a watch WHICH is very old.

(I have a watch THAT is very old )   .

 Use of where:  The hotel where we stayed was very expensive.

Please note that our final lesson 13.12.2011 by popular demand will be in the morning at 11 in Aula 15. You will need to cofirm that you are coming during lessons next week!

              See you soon!

CFP – Special Issue “The Experimental Turn in Philosophical Pragmatics”

The Experimental Turn in Philosophical Pragmatics

Modern pragmatics has been defined as “philosophical”, not only because its main representative authors, such as Grice and Austin, were philosophers of ordinary language, but also because it has used linguistic and philosophical analysis as a method to give an explanation of communicative features of language. However, in the last years, plenty of studies have brought classical pragmatic theories in front of the tribunal of experience, to test their power of explanation and prediction. The result has been the growth of a flourishing interdiscipline, called “Experimental Pragmatics”, which claims that understanding an utterance requires the access to the speaker’s intention in specific contexts and uses experimental techniques coming from psycholinguistics, cognitive sciences and psychology to bring to light the comprehension mechanisms of non-literal and figurative language. The objective of this issue is to discuss the main empirical results of Experimental Pragmatics and to explore its theoretical influence on “philosophical” pragmatics in its most important research subjects, such as figures of speech, implicatures, etc. How and to what extent do experimental method and conceptual analysis interact in pragmatics? Which consequences does this experimental turn have for theorizing in pragmatics?

This issue of Humana.Mente welcomes contributions addressing these and related themes, including:

Presuppositions vs. Implications
Lexical Disambiguation and Reference Resolution
The Pragmatics of Discourse
Evidence of the Explicit/Implicit Distinction
Processing of Implicatures
Metaphor Understanding
How Metonymy works
Production and Perception of Jokes and Humor
Irony Comprehension
