How do we form sets of different elements? How do those collections contribute to meaning? In this week’s episode, we talk about set theory: the basics of how it works, how it connects to adjectives, and how it informs the way we build up larger meanings from individual words.

Looking forward to hear what people have to say! ^_^

Reblog for the day crew! ^_^

New episode is up! Set theory, yay!

Why do people interpret the same sentence multiple ways? What is it about semantics that leads us to more than one meaning? This week, The Ling Space takes on semantic scope and talks about how the most innocent-seeming words in your sentence are fighting it out to bestow upon you an interpretation where they come out on top, as well as how we avoid being lost in an ambiguous fog all the time.

This is a new kind of topic for us to cover, so we’re really looking forward to hearing what people have to say about it! No ambiguity about that. ^_^

Quick reblog for the morning crew!

Been away from Tumblr for a couple days because busy, but new episode! Yay!
