SINCERE APOLOGIES! 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.

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.
