Abstract:

Implicatures in Discourse examines Spanish conversations and oral
narratives in order to seek support for a pragmatic theory of
anaphora. Blackwell argues that the use of anaphoric expressions may
be considered conversational implicatures that give rise to inferences
of coreference and non-coreference. Her analysis shows how speakers
abide by Levinson's 'neo-Gricean' principles of Quantity,
Informativeness, and Manner, but that grammatical, semantic,
cognitive, and pragmatic constraints interact with the neo-Gricean
principles, influencing anaphora use and interpretation. The study
also reveals how mutual knowledge, including familiarity with Spanish
social and cultural norms, enables interlocutors to use and comprehend
minimal referring expressions, which cultural outsiders may not be
able to interpret. While drawing on earlier work on anaphora and
reference, this book offers a fresh look at discourse anaphora, and
sheds light on the ways in which speakers felicitously use and
interpret anaphoric expressions in a variety of communicative
contexts.
