The SMCSL is a research network (“Wissenschaftliches Netzwerk”) funded by the DFG that investigates the Semantics and Metasemantics of Context-Sensitive Language. It will run from 2016 to 2019 and host 6 workshops at the home institutions of its members. The following research questions will be addressed: 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?
