Aesthetic Adjectives

By Louise McNally and Isidora Stojanovic


International audienceWe investigate various linguistic criteria that may be used in delineating the class of aesthetic adjectives. We also discuss the relationship between genuinely aesthetic adjectives (of which 'beautiful' and 'ugly' are paradigms) and other adjectives that may, but need not, be used in making an aesthetic judgment

Topics: aesthetic concepts, predicates of personal taste, adjectives, experiencers, evaluative predicates, value judgements, gradability, subjectivity, [SHS.PHIL] Humanities and Social Sciences/Philosophy
