Title: Making Semantics Pragmatic
Edited By: Ken Turner
URL: http://books.emeraldinsight.com/display.asp?K=9780857249098&cur=GBP&sf1=kword_index&sort=sort_date%2
Series Title: Current Research in the Semantics/pragmatics Interface
Description:

This collection of especially invited papers aims to explore the nature of
the semantics/pragmatics interface by examining the extent to which the
analysis of certain expressions or constructions can be pragmaticised. As
the title of the collection implicates, it is anticipated that the
theoretical and descriptive burden will move from semantics to pragmatics
However not all parts of a linguistic system will yield to a pragmatic
treatment. The possibility remains that certain expressions or
constructions are more economically and elegantly treated in semantic
terms. Thus, this collection also contains papers that address the topic of
'making pragmatics semantic'. This collection contributes to the current
interest in examining the division of labour between semantics and
pragmatics in the analysis of meaning. All of the papers are at the
forefront of knowledge in these matters and each contains original
empirical analyses and/or novel theoretical perspectives. This book is
relevant to courses in university departments of linguistics, modern
languages, philosophy and psychology and to a wide range of university
teaching and research.
