Title: Game Theory and Pragmatics
Edited By: Anton Benz
Gerhard Jäger
Robert Van Rooij
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition

Rooted in Gricean tradition, this book concentrates on game- and
decision-theoretic (GDT) approaches to the foundations of pragmatics. An
Introduction to GDT, with an overview of GDT pragmatics research to date
and its relation to semantics and to Gricean pragmatics is followed by
contributions offering a high-level survey of current GDT pragmatics and
the field of its applications, demonstrating that this approach provides a
sound basis for synchronic and diachronic explanations of language use.
