International Multidisciplinary Colloquium: Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science

December 20-21, 2012
ENS-Paris, France

December 18-19, 2012: Tutorial
The colloquium will preceded by a two day-tutorial. The tutorial will provide an
overview and a critical discussion of the various approaches to the mass-count
distinctuion both in philosophy and in linguistic semantics.

The aim of this colloquium is to provide a platform of exchange between
linguists, philosophers and psychologists, working the different aspects of the
mass/count distinction. Such a resolutely interdisciplinary approach is indeed
necessary to fully apprehend the new questions that are presently arising in
connection to the mass/count distinction. This multidisciplinary conference
aspires to move this scientific debate forward, and contribute to the evolution
of current methodology.

A more detailed description of the scientific scope of this colloquium is
available on the dedicated website: http://mass-count.sciencesconf.org/

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

- Alternative approaches to standard extensional mereology
- Analysis of the (quasi-)classifier role on nouns in constructions like “the
town of Paris”
- The mass/count distinction in connection to non-sortal nouns like “the kind”
of “the type”, etc.
- Plurality and individuation of reference
- Syntactic mapping
- Experimental psychology and assessment of theoretical analyses


We invite submissions of anonymous two-page abstracts including references, for
a 30-minute talk.
