This course is an introduction to the philosophy of language.  Our
focus will be on the tradition that has its roots in the work of
Frege and Russell.  We will survey the main approaches to the topics
of truth, meaning and reference.  Readings will include work by
Frege, Russell, Tarski, Strawson, Kripke, Putnam, Quine, and
Davidson.  There will be mid-term and final examinations as well as
one short paper.
