The Maxims of relevance theory for determining the referent of a proper name
Özercan, Aliyar; Grünberg, Teo; Department of Philosophy (2016)
People use proper names to refer to certain objects and people. One of the problems with this use is that people use the same name to refer to many other people. There many different theories developed by philosophers to explain how we refer to a person using a proper name. We shall see that though many of the theories can explain to a degree how we use the same name for different people but fail to elucidate how we determine the true referent among the many people that they know who bear the same name.

The use of verbal morphology in Turkish as a third language: The case of Russian-English-Turkish trilinguals
Antonova-Unlu, Elena; Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem (SAGE Publications, 2015-06-01)
Aims and Objectives: Several studies suggest that third language acquisition (TLA) is marked with complex patterns of language interaction.

This study aims to contribute to the discussion by examining the use of verbal morphology in third language (L3) Turkish of Russian-English-Turkish trilinguals. We investiga...
