Game-Theoretic Models of Linguistic Contexts
I will argue that the application of game theory in studying the semantics/pragmatics of language delineates three classes of linguistic contexts.A-contexts are correlates of chance moves and incomplete information. B-contexts are correlates of the information encoded in the histories of plays. C-contexts are correlates of exogenous and environmental parameters used in game theory. Semantic/pragmatic phenomena instantiate one or more of these classes. All of them are in operation in anaphoric phenomena, for instance. I will sketch an argument for the completeness of the set of these three classes of context.
