Title: Pragmatics
Edited By: Noel Burton-Roberts
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403986991
Series Title: Palgrave Advances
Description:

This contribution to Palgrave's "Advances" series addresses a wide range of
issues that have arisen in post-Gricean pragmatic theory and presents a
range of theoretical positions and approaches. Distinguished authors whose
work is well known as lying at the interface of language, logic, linguistics,
psychology and cognitive science contribute to the current lively debate
within the field, with consideration of relevance theory, neo-Gricean
pragmatics, optimality -theoretic pragmatics and experimental work. Among
the specific topics covered are scalar implicature, lexical semantics and
pragmatics, concepts and concept-adjustment, indexicality, speech acts,
procedural meaning and the notion of 'constraint', the explicature-implicature
distinction, numerical expressions, the semantics and pragmatics of
negation and negative polarity items, and whether successful
communication involves 'shared content'.
