María Inés Crespo investigates the meaning of gradable adjectives like ‘tasty’ and ‘long’ and the sentences that we can produce with these words. Sentences like ‘This cake is tasty’ and ‘This is a long book’ can lead to disputes because ‘tasty’ and ‘long’ are, in some sense, subjective. Inés Crespo aims to develop a precise idea of the sense in which we can say that the meaning of such words is subjective.
