Abstract:

This book covers a range of topics within Galician semantics and
pragmatics. It involves applications and development of semantic and
pragmatic theory within Galician linguistics. The main theoretical model
used throughout is provided by Relevance theory, as a general approach to
verbal communication. In this respect, two of the main objectives in this
book are, firstly, to explore applications of this theory to Galician in
order to improve and expand the description of the language and, secondly,
to investigate possible consequences of these applications for the theory
itself.

The areas covered range from aspects of semantic content, the pragmatic
interpretation of various linguistic phenomena, through to non-declarative
sentences and discourse markers. The unifying force behind these various
topics is three-fold:
(a) most of the areas explored are seen as instantiations of language use;
(b) they are, consequently, seen as falling under the common remit of
verbal communication; and, therefore,
(c) they are studied together within a single unified theoretical model.
The diversifying factor lies in the range of areas of theoretical
application examined. In this respect, one of the main contributions of
this book lies precisely in the application of Relevance theory to a
diverse, yet theoretically coherent, set of communicative phenomena. These
applications, in turn, provide further evidence for the validity of the
theory used, particularly through its deployment to a wider set of
linguistic data and languages.
