24.729 Topics in Philosophy of Language: Modeling Representation (MIT)
The seminar will be devoted to understanding what we're up to when we ascribe contents to a person's assertions and mental attitudes. We seek to make clear the rules of the game for the philosophy of language. We'll survey classic discussions of the issue by Field, Lewis and Stalnaker. But much of the emphasis of the class will be on getting clear about the limitations of our theoretical tools. I'd like to focus on places where our theorizing runs into trouble, or breaks down altogether.

Le Français en Afrique : Revue du réseau des observatoires du Français contemporain en Afrique
This journal was set up in 1979 to study the different usage and development of the French language in various francophone African countries. Specifically, it examines use of French from a purely linguistic, rather than ethnocentric, viewpoint. It considers problems caused by the variety of French spoken, seeks solutions to these problems, and also tries to bring together possibly isolated French language researchers in Africa. It appears annually and is available in paper or online format.
