Indexical Indeterminacy

  • M. J. Cresswell
Part of the Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy book series (SLAP, volume 60)


In this chapter I want to discuss a problem that was raised briefly on p.255f of Cresswell 1990, though I will illustrate it by adapting the ‘enemy’ example discussed above on pp.21–24. In order to see just how the problem arises I shall expand a little on the attitude to context dependence which has been presupposed in earlier chapters. Some of what I am about to say repeats points made on p.242f of Cresswell 1990, and in other places in chapter 16 of that work.
