Query:   This is a request for help with a reference on an article that I
downloaded from linguist list a while back, and I didn't write
down the complete source. The name of the article is
"Grice's Cooperative Principle: Getting the Meaning
Across", by Bethan Davies. The only information that I wrote down
was that it was part of the "Leeds Working Papers". I am
currently writing my dissertation, and I'm working on
Grice's Cooperative Principle in relation to turn-taking, so I
would like to quote this article, but I need to have the full
source. Does anyone have the information, that you could help me? I
would really appreciate it.
