Abstract:

This is the first book to collect research on game-theoretic tools in the
analysis of language with particular reference to semantics and pragmatics.
In three parts, it provides a historical overview of how game theory came
to be used in the analysis of linguistic meaning, then its application to
pragmatics, and finally its applications to semantics (see below for ToC).
The book is a balanced combination of philosophical, linguistic, logical
and mathematical argumentation. 

The book also has a self-contained introductory tutorial, written by the
editor, to give a gentle introduction to the complex topics covered later
in the book. This is especially important given its multidisciplinary market.

CRISPI series: The aim of this series is to focus upon the relationship
between semantic and pragmatic theories for a variety of natural language
constructions. The boundary between semantics and pragmatics can be drawn
in many various ways; the relative benefits of each gave rise to a vivid
theoretical dispute in the literature in the last two decades. As a side
effect, this variety has given rise to a certain amount of confusion and
lack of purpose in the extant publications on the topic. This series
provides a forum where the confusion within existing literature can be
removed and the issues raised by different positions can be discussed with
a renewed sense of purpose. The editors intend the contributions to this
series to take further strides towards clarity and cautious consensus.
