‘Scholarship’, ‘Research’ and ‘The Pursuit of Truth’
My title is about as misleading as it could be. That it could be misleading is typical of the way language works. In a company as austere and learned as this I doubt whether I would have the temerity to discourse gravely upon the subject my title seems to point to. What in fact I want to talk about is the words contained in the title, and what trying to talk about such words involves. The address might have been called ‘Notes towards the Definition of Some Vectorial Functions of Language’ but that wouldn’t have helped much either.
