The SMCSL is a research network (“Wissenschaftliches Netzwerk”) funded by the DFG that investigates the semantics and metasemantics of context-sensitive language. It will host 6 workshops at the home institutions of its members, addressing the following research questions: How widespread is semantic context-sensitivity? How should the semantics of context-sensitive expressions be construed? Which methods are suitable to determine whether an expression is context-sensitive? Which aspects of the context have an influence on the semantics of context-sensitive expressions?
