We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
Date: 14-May-2007 From: Arash Golzari <arashgolzarigmail.com> Subject: Semantic Meaning vs. Pragmatic Meaning
I am writing to ask if it is possible for a listener (or reader) to understand and analyze the pragmatic meaning of a phrase or sentence before its semantic meaning. If possible, could you please provide an example for that.
Your consideration is highly appreciated,
