How does our knowledge of the language on the one hand, and of the context
on the other, permit us to understand what we are told, to resolve
ambiguities, to grasp both explicit and implicit content, to appreciate
metaphor and irony? These issues have been studied in two disciplines:
Linguistic pragmatics and psycholinguistics, with only limited interactions
between the two. This volume lays down the bases for a new field:
Experimental Pragmatics. Contributions review pioneering work and present
novel ways of articulating theories and experimental methods in the area.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

Written In: English (ENG )
