Developments in Experimental Pragmatics

The upcoming issue of LPP aims at presenting and exploring new research
evidence concerning a range of pragmatic phenomena by employing
experimental methodologies developed in psycholinguistics and experimental
social psychology to investigate issues raised in linguistic-pragmatics

We welcome contributions on a wide range of issues, such as: psychology of
reasoning, spontaneous communicative inferencing, macro- and
micro-pragmatic analysis of reasoning tasks, automaticity vs.
controllability of pragmatic processes, psychological and
neurophysiological investigations into online comprehension processes of
(figurative) communication, weak and strong communication, speaker's
meaning versus sentence meaning, processing models of sentence and
utterance meaning, figurative language comprehension, direct and indirect
speech acts, explicatures and implicatures, reference resolution,
quantifiers scope, lexical disambiguation, and other issues of interest to

The interdisciplinary framework of experimental pragmatics offers an
opportunity to explore a range of communicative meaning phenomena that have
been so far explored separately in autonomous and unconnected domains of
linguistics, psychology and neurology. In order to obtain detailed
communicative comprehension models of (on-line) meaning construction,
interdisciplinary approach needs to be adopted to allow for integrating
both theory and research tools of all the branches of cognitive sciences
that strive to uncover the nature meaning.
