Institution: Università degli Studi di Palermo
Linguistic Field: Discourse Analysis
Subject Language: English
Abstract: In this paper I deal with situational uses of utterances, whose interpretations I call 'pragmemes' following terminology by Mey. There are many interesting cases of utterances whose interpretations largely depend on large fragments of context. Utterances analysed "Ennio is your favourite student", "I want to speak with your mother, not with your aunt", "Is anyone serving you?", "come", etc.
