Abstract:

This book presents current research that discusses some of the major issues
in pragmatics from new perspectives, and directs attention to aspects of
fundamental tenets that have been investigated only to a limited extent.

Current pragmatic theories emphasize the importance of intention,
cooperation, common ground, mutual knowledge, relevance, and commitment in
executing communicative acts. However, recent research in cognitive
psychology, linguistic pragmatics, and intercultural communication has
raised questions that warrant some revision of these major tenets. Debates
about the place of intention in pragmatics have indicated that Gricean
intentions may play a less central role in communication than traditionally
assumed. Cognitive psychologists pointed out that individual, egocentric
endeavors of interlocutors play a much more decisive role in the initial
stages of production and comprehension than current pragmatic theories
envision. Some researchers criticized the Clark and Brennan's common ground
model and Clark's contribution theory arguing that these approaches retain
a communication-as-transfer-between-minds view of language, and treat
intentions and goals as pre-existing psychological entities that are later
somehow formulated in language. All these developments are addressed in the
papers of the volume written by prominent scholars representing several
disciplines.
