Title: Salience and Defaults in Utterance Processing
Edited By: Kasia M. Jaszczolt

Series Title: Mouton Series in Pragmatics [MSP] 12
Description:

The book addresses controversies around the conscious vs automatic
processing of contextual information and the distinction between literal and
nonliteral meaning. It sheds new light on the relation of the literal/nonliteral
distinction to the distinction between the automatic and conscious retrieval of
information. The question of literal meaning is inherently interwoven with the
question of lexical salience on one hand and default interpretations on the other.
This volume addresses these interconnected issues, stressing their mutual
interdependence. It contributes new, ground-breaking insights into the questions
of literalness, semantics-pragmatics interface, automatic (default) retrieval and
contextual pragmatic enrichment, modelling of discourse processing, lexical
pragmatics, and other related issues.
