  • Offers an overview of the latest developments concerning Truth discussions in the philosophy of language and linguistics
  • Updated interpretation of the topic of redundancy and pro-sententialism
  • Takes the role of truth concepts in our communicative exchange into account

The book offers a characterization of the meaning and role of the notion of truth in natural languages and an explanation of why, in spite of the big amount of proposals about truth, this task has proved to be resistant to the different analyses. The general thesis of the book is that defining truth is perfectly possible and that the average educated philosopher of language has the tools to do it. The book offers an updated treatment of the meaning of truth ascriptions from taking into account the latest views in philosophy of language and linguistics.
