Abstract:

"Bidirectional Optimality Theory" (BiOT) emerged at the turn of the
millennium as a fusion of Radical Pragmatics and Optimality Theoretic
Semantics. It stirred a wealth of new research in the pragmatics‑semantics
interface and heavily influenced e.g. the development of evolutionary and game
theoretic approaches. Optimality Theory holds that linguistic output can be
understood as the optimized products of ranked constraints. At the centre of
BiOT is the insight that this optimisation has to take place both in production
and interpretation, and that the production-interpretation cycle has to lead back
to the original input. BiOT is now generally interpreted as a description of
diachronically stable and cognitively optimal form-meaning pairs. It found
applications beyond the semantics-pragmatics interface in language acquisition,
historical linguistics, phonology, syntax, and typology. This book provides a
state of the art overview of these developments. It collects nine chapters by
leading scientists in the field.
