Title: The Role of Data at the Semantics-Pragmatics Interface
Edited By: Eniko Nemeth
K. Bibok
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110240269-1
Series Title: Mouton Series in Pragmatics 9
Description:

To join the recent debate on data problem in linguistics, this collection
of papers provides complex dual purpose analyses at the interface of
semantics and pragmatics (including historical, lexical, formal and
experimental pragmatics). Based on several current theories and various
types of data taken from a number of languages, it discusses object
theoretical issues of referentiality, scalar implicatures, implicit
arguments, grammaticalization, co-construction and syntactic alternation in
their mutual connections to metatheoretical questions concerning the
relationship between data and theory.
