Abstract:

This is a collection of papers that resulted from the Third International
Conference on Contrastive Semantics and Pragmatics that was held at
Shanghai International Studies University in September 2005. Their common
focus lies in aspects of the contrastive semantics and pragmatics in a wide
variety of languages. These aspects include several themes that arise from
Gricean and neo-Gricean considerations of contrastive pragmatics; from
cognitive semantics and pragmatics, including metaphor and issues that
relate to the logical structure of quantification, modality and
demonstration; and from contrastive lexical, constructional and discourse
semantics. The languages discussed include Afrikaans, Amele, Czech,
English, Finnish, French, German, Gokana, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin,
Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Yakut and Zulu.
