Developments in Experimental Pragmatics

The upcoming issue of LPP aims at presenting and exploring new research
evidence concerning a range of pragmatic phenomena obtained by employing
experimental methodologies developed in psycholinguistics and experimental
social psychology to investigate issues of critical importance to today's

We welcome contributions on a wide range of issues, such as: psychology of
reasoning, spontaneous communicative inferencing, automaticity vs.
controllability of pragmatic processes, psychological and
neuropsychological investigations into online comprehension processes of
communication, weak and strong communication, models of sentence and
discourse comprehension, figurative language comprehension, direct and

resolution, lexical disambiguation, and other issues of interest to

The interdisciplinary framework of experimental pragmatics offers an
opportunity to explore a range of communicative phenomena that have so far
been explored separately in autonomous and unconnected domains of
linguistics and psychology. In order to obtain comprehensive models of the
pragmatics of communication and comprehension, interdisciplinary approach
needs to be espoused and diversified research tools of cognitive sciences
need to be put to experimental testing.
