Recently, the investigation of word meaning in utterances has
connected two different fields: lexical semantics and pragmatics. A
new linguistic discipline, namely lexical pragmatics is emerging. The
eleven papers of the present book constitute a unit in the sense that
they have a common aim: to explore the interaction between lexical
semantics and pragmatics. The authors examine phenomena such as
productive sense extension, regular polysemy, multifunctionality,
implicit arguments and predicates, and non-typical anaphoric pronouns,
on the basis of linguistic data, for instance, from English,
Norwegian, Russian, and Hungarian, as well as using a great variety of
frameworks (optimality framework, two-level semantics, the theory of
generative lexicon, cognitive grammar, Gricean theory, and relevance
theory).
