I guess verificationism may be a philosophy of language: the idea that

to know the meaning of a scientific proposition... is to know what would be evidence for that proposition

Are there more contemporary intersections between philosophy of language and science?

I'm especially interested in verbose continental work: so please cite up to four books etc. (arguments, chapters, articles, positions) which are based in work with both the philosophy of language and science.

    I think you should mention continental in your title since the main such interfaces are in analytic philosophy. – Eliran Aug 9 '16 at 10:10

    I'd be interested in seeing more connections, and I do think that they're there - I have some ideas myself; that the question can't be answered or even be given hints shows a possibly narrow pool of expertise in the community. – Mozibur Ullah Aug 11 '16 at 8:32
  • I want to strongly endorse the point @MoziburUllah has made: I have the feeling that often enough close votes are made, because the question isn't conceived as answerable. But that often seems to be a problem of lacking expertise in fields that are perfectly able to answer these question. A little more humbleness would be good. (I do not intend to attack Keelan or Joseph in person here, it is more of a general observation within the last weeks). – Philip Klöcking Aug 16 '16 at 9:41

    This is a list question ("are there more ...") and can be answered as broadly or narrowly as one wants. In the end, intersections can be drawn between any two fields depending how free one wants to be with the term 'intersection'. It would be preferable to ask something more specific. – user2953 Aug 16 '16 at 14:33
  • are open ended questions against the rules @Keelan – user6917 Aug 16 '16 at 15:32
