Abstract:

Although the notion of procedural meaning is found in areas such as
discourse markers, reference, tense, modality and intonation, until now
there has been no single volume entirely devoted to it. Over 25 years,
since the initial proposal by Blakemore, a number of refinements have been
suggested, yet some criticisms have also been raised. The role and status
of the conceptual / procedural distinction within a theory of human
communication and the nature of procedural encoding were in need of
reassessment in the light of current research in linguistic theory,
cognitive science, experimental pragmatics and language acquisition. The
papers collected here serve this general purpose from different
standpoints. Some of them consider the topic from the angle of its
theoretical foundations and put forth original proposals aimed at
clarifying the most controversial issues. Others take a more data-driven
orientation and offer novel analyses illustrating how encoded instructions
work and how much can be gained from approaching certain linguistic
phenomena in procedural terms. The contributions in this volume represent
an inflection point in the delimitation and understanding of the notion of
procedural meaning and open new paths for future research.
