About this book

This volume provides insight into linguistic pragmatics from the perspective of linguists who have been influenced by philosophy. Theory of Mind and perspectives on point of view are presented along with other topics including: semantics vs. semiotics,  clinical pragmatics, explicatures, cancellability of explicatures, interactive language use,  reference, common ground, presupposition, definiteness, logophoricity and point of view in connection with pragmatic inference, pragmemes and language games, pragmatics and artificial languages, the mechanism of the form/content correlation from a pragmatic point of view,  amongst other issues relating to language use. Relevance Theory is introduced as an important framework, allowing readers to familiarize themselves with technical details and linguistic terminology.

This book follows on from the first volume: both contain the work of world renowned experts who discuss theories relevant to pragmatics. Here, the relationship between semantics and pragmatics is explored: conversational explicatures are a way to bridge the gap in semantics between underdetermined logical forms and full propositional content. 

These volumes are written in an accessible way and work well both as a stimulus to further research and as a guide to less experienced researchers and students who would like to know more about this vast, complex, and difficult field of inquiry.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Perspectives on linguistic pragmatics, comprises 20 chapters and covers a range of topics that pertain to linguistic pragmatics. … this volume enjoys a number of merits that make it a unique text suitable not only for professionals (e.g., pragmaticists, semanticists, linguists, anthropologists, literary theorists, and philosophers of language) but also for anyone who is interested in a general understanding of linguistic pragmatics (or pragmalinguistics).” (Mohammad Ali Salmani Nodoushan, Intercultural Pragmatics, Vol. 11 (4), 2014)
