Abstract

This paper develops the view presented in our 1997 paper “Varieties of Quotation”. In the first part of the paper we show how phenomena such as scare quotes, echoing and mimicry can be treated as what we call Speech-Act Heuristics. We then defend a semantic account of mixed quotation. Along the way we discuss the role of indexicals in mixed quotation and the non-cancelability of reference to words in mixed quotation. We also respond to some objections raised by Recanati, Saka, Stainton and Reimer.
