Abstract:

How direct is the mapping between linguistic constructions and their
interpretations? Much less direct than we commonly assume, according to
Daniel Wedgwood. Extending current ideas from frameworks like Relevance
Theory and Dynamic Syntax, Wedgwood upholds a radical position on
modelling linguistic competence: the idea of interfacing static syntactic
and semantic representations must be abandoned in favour of models of the
incremental construction of meaning during parsing--which may involve
significant pragmatic enrichment. In illustration, Wedgwood presents a
detailed study of a key meeting point of grammar and pragmatics.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
                            Semantics
                            Syntax
