|Idiolect: An idiolect is a language spoken in a particular subgroup of a language community. In extreme cases this can be a single subject. One problem is the clarification of the word meanings and thus the possible determination of truth values (true, false) of statements._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Idiolect/Type/Token/Field: when you look at an idiolect, you can also start with sentence types - otherwise they have to be tokens because of the demonstrative pronouns, etc.
Sentence types: are no longer ambiguous, if they are individuated compositionally instead phonetically or orthographically.
Ambiguity: E.g. "Visiting relatives can be boring". - One should count them as different tokens of two different sentences._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
