In this talk, I will present a few recent studies on pragmatics in children and adults on the autism spectrum. Results of these studies confirm that autistic individuals may successfully engage in context-sensitive utterance interpretation. However, the pragmatic strategies they use prove inadequate in situations where the interpretation process requires genuinely adopting the speaker’s perspective. Such data from autism make it worth exploring a theoretical picture in which the same type of pragmatic output may be achieved, in certain situations at least, by processes at varying degrees of complexity.
