Abstract:

The main argument of this book is that the notion of truth plays no role in
speaker-hearers' interpretation of linguistic utterances and that it is not
needed for theoretical accounts of linguistic meaning either. The
theoretical argument is developed in the first part, while the second part
supports it with cognitive relevance-theoretic, rather than truth-based,
analyses of the 'concessive' expressions but, although and even if.

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Written In: English (ENG )
