Proceedings of the University of Herfordshire Relevance Theory
Workshop. Edited by Marjolein Groefsema

ISBN 0-952-9901-0-5

This volume contains fifteen of the papers that were presented at the
University of Hertfordshire RT Workshop, which was held in Hatfield
Peverel from 27-29 October 1995. The aim of the Workshop was to bring
together researchers working within the framework of Relevance theory
to dicuss their research and exchange ideas. The papers presented in
this volume reflect the wide range of topics that are currently being
studied from a Relevance theoretical perspective, while some of the
papers critically assess aspects of Relevance theory.
