Title: Explicit Communication
Subtitle: Robyn Carston's Pragmatics
Edited By: Belén Soria
Esther Romero
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
Description:

This collection brings about a current interdisciplinary debate on explicit
communication. With Robyn Carston's pragmatics at the core of the discussion,
special attention is drawn to linguistic under-determinacy, the explicit/implicit
divide and also to the construction or recruitment of concepts in on-line
utterance comprehension.
