This is a dry run for my talk at the Oxford Workshop on Verbal Disputes.

I will attempt to be precise about the notion of a merely verbal disagreement, and explain how we can fix on the meaning of our logical constants can play a coordinating role in dialogue, and how (in a certain sense), it might be impossible to a have a merely verbal dispute concerning logical constants such as conjunction, negation, the quantifiers, and even—if you’re careful—modal operators.

If you’d like to attend, keep track on the PhilEvents entry for the talk.
