Rachel Sterken, Oslo University: "Speaking Authentically”


Abstract
In this talk, I provide an analysis of authentic speech. In addition, I pose and answer various questions about authentic speech: What are paradigm examples of authentic speech and inauthentic speech? Is authentic speech valuable? What are its purposes? Is authentic speech possible? How does authentic speech differ from sincere speech? Do any speech acts have authenticity conditions?
