If situations are particulars, so are events.
So you spent this time as a runaway, escaping from abusive situations, hardening yourself to those kinds of situations, developing defense mechanisms.
A sense of roundedness in the contributors and occasionally a sense of drama when I was put in uncomfortable situations, or when the situations spun out of control.
"Exposing yourself to anxiety-provoking situations, rather than avoiding them, helps to change your relationship to anxiety and increase your confidence in these situations."
How are situations related to states of affairs?
Such situations are sometimes called situations of act-state independence.
The claim is that all those situations are part of situations where the donkey was greeted enthusiastically.
If there are 500 ballots in all, the exemplifying situations are all situations where 251 ballots have been counted.
If assertions are about particular situations, reports of assertions might not be accurate unless they take into account the situations the assertions were about.
The proposition expressed by 36(a) seems to be exemplified by minimal past situations in which Josephine built an airplane, and this set of situations is quantized.
In (38) quantification is over situations exemplifying the proposition expressed by a man saw a donkey, which are all situations that contain a single man and a single donkey.
While some people with very complex or unique situations may do better with the direct assistance of a tax professional, the majority of tax situations are easily covered by TurboTax.
So far we have been focusing only on the medieval discussion of paradigmatic relational situations—that is, relational situations conforming to the analysis suggested in Aristotle’s Categories.
The major consequence of (29) is that if a proposition has exemplifying situations at all, the set of its exemplifying situations must be either homogeneous or quantized in the sense of Krifka 1992.
In contrast, the situations exemplifying the proposition expressed by there is mud are all situations that contain mud and nothing else, hence do not have to be minimal situations containing mud.
Situations entered natural language semantics with Jon Barwise’s paper Scenes and Other Situations (Barwise 1981), followed by Barwise and Perry’s Situations and Attitudes (Barwise & Perry 1983).
Austinian topic situations (also referred to as “focus situations”, “described situations”, or “reference situations” in the literature) are often non-overt, but the tense of a sentence might give them away.
On the Austinian perspective, at least certain kinds of implicit restrictions for quantification domains are a direct consequence of the fact that assertions are about particular actual situations, and that those situations can be smaller or bigger parts of the actual world.
Translated into a situation semantics (Klein himself talks about topic times, rather than topic situations), Klein’s explanation is that tense relates utterance situations to topic situations, which do not necessarily coincide with the situations described by the main predication of a sentence.
We might want to have qualitative and quantitative uncertainty because we may be so uncertain about some situations that we do not want to assign numbers to the probabilities of their events, while there are other situations where we do have a sense of the probabilities of their events; and these situations can interact.
