The first posting didn't go to news.announce.newgroups because of a misplaced 's'.  I was advised to repost to make it official...  The following is an OFFICIAL request for discussion to create a newsgroup called sci.philosophy.language.  (At least in my mind) It supersedes a previous post I made requesting the creation of talk.philosophy.language.  It has been pointed out to me that a designation of sci might be more appropriate.   The proposal is to create a group with the following parameters:   Name of group:           sci.philosophy.language Mode:                    unmoderated   Charter:   Inasmuch as there exist groups like sci.philosophy.tech, talk.philosophy.misc, and comp.ai.philosophy which discuss various issues not directly relating to philosophy of language, and inasmuch as philosophy of language is an important and viable specialization within philosophy, I propose the creation of a group for facilitating discussion in this area.  Topics for discussion will include (minimally) discussions of interest for philosophy of language, philosophy of linguistics, theories of meaning and truth, reference, pragmatics, speech act theory, intensional semantics, (to some extent) language of thought, theories of names, demonstratives, works (past and current) in such topics, etc.---all the issues that could be part of a serious study of philosophy of language.   I understand that the normal procedure calls for a discussion period of some 30 days, after which a voting period would be initiated.  So let's start the discussion.   Thanks. --   Rick Horowitz     CSUF, Philosophy     [email protected] xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx    The word "politics" is derived from the word "poly", meaning   "many", and the word "ticks", meaning "blood sucking parasites".

The required period for discussion has been satisfied.  Many people wrote to say they favored such a group.  Unfortunately, as I tried to tell them, that itself did not constitute a vote.  This is all the more true due to the fact that information from one of my accounts was lost before I could read what I received from everyone involved.  This, incidentally, is also the reason I have been slow to get the call for votes out.  Another is concern that there wasn't enough interest.  As I've been encouraged to let the voting process decide whether there is enough interest, I'm now (hopefully correctly) issuing this call for votes.  My understanding of the materials that survived my account problem is that the voting proceeds as follows:  Starting from this date, there is a 25 day voting period.  During this time, votes are to be sent to "[email protected]". DO NOT SEND YOUR VOTE TO MY UNC ACCOUNT; IT MUST GO TO THE RHOROWIT @MONDRIAN.CSUFRESNO.EDU ACCOUNT!!!  The polls will be open until 31 Jan 93, 23:59 UTC.  Votes sent after that date will not be counted.  Your vote must contain, minimally, your e-mail address, and your vote specifically stating that you vote YES or vote NO for the creation of a newsgroup, in line with the RFD above, to be called 'sci.philosophy.language'.  Hopefully, I haven't left out anything important.  If I have, feel free to molesticate my mailbox.  Let's vote. --  Rick Horowitz     CSUF, Philosophy     [email protected] xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx    The word "politics" is derived from the word "poly", meaning   "many", and the word "ticks", meaning "blood sucking parasites".
