Abstract:

One of the most lively and contentious issues in contemporary linguistic
theory concerns the elusive boundary between semantics and pragmatics, and
Professor Laurence R. Horn of Yale University has been at the center of
that debate ever since his groundbreaking 1972 UCLA dissertation. This
volume in honor of Horn brings together the best of current work at the
semantics/pragmatics boundary from a neo-Gricean perspective. Featuring the
contributions of 22 leading researchers, it includes papers on implicature
(Kent Bach), inference (Betty Birner), presupposition (Barbara Abbott),
lexical semantics (Georgia Green, Sally McConnell-Ginet, Steve Kleinedler &
Randall Eggert), negation (Pauline Jacobson, Frederick Newmeyer, Scott
Schwenter), polarity (Donka Farkas, Anastasia Giannakidou, Michael Israel),
implicit variables (Greg Carlson & Gianluca Storto), definiteness (Barbara
Partee), reference (Ellen Prince, Andrew Kehler & Gregory Ward), and logic
(Jerrold Sadock, Francis Jeffry Pelletier & Andrew Hartline). These
original papers represent not only a fitting homage to Larry Horn, but also
an important contribution to semantic and pragmatic theory.
