The formal treatment of the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue
became possible through a series of breakthroughs in foundational
methodology. There is broad consensus on a couple of issues, like the
fact that some variety of dynamic theory is necessary to capture
certain characteristics of dialogue. Other matters still are disputed.
This volume contains papers both of foundational and applied
orientation. It is the result of one of a series of specialized
Workshops on Formal Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue that took
place in 2001. One can therefore truly say that it mirrors both the
state of the art at the end of the past millennium and research
strategies that are pursued at the beginning of the new millennium.
The collected papers cover the range from philosophy of language to
computer science, from the analysis of presupposition to
investigations into corpora, and touches upon topics like the role of
speech acts in dialogue or language specific phenomena. This broad
coverage will make the volume valuable for students of dialogue from
all fields of expertise.
