The Practical and Theoretical Implications of Defective Communication

Linguistic communication can be defective in many ways. We often fail to understand one another, we fail as cooperative communicators, or speak insincerely. The ways in which we communicate can give rise to or facilitate various harms. Such defects have many sources, and raise important theoretical and practical questions. This workshop focus on such questions.
