Abstract:

When using language, many aspects of our messages are left implicit in what
we say. While grammar is responsible for what we express explicitly,
pragmatics explains how we infer additional meanings. The problem is that
it is not always a trivial matter to decide which of the meanings conveyed
is explicit (grammatical) and which implicit (pragmatic). Pragmatics and
Grammar lays out a methodology for students and scholars to distinguish
between the two. It explains how and why grammar and pragmatics combine
together in natural discourse, and how pragmatic uses become grammatical in
time. 



1. Introduction: Grammar, pragmatics and what's between them; 

Part I. Drawing the Grammar/Pragmatics Divide: 
2. Distinguishing the grammatical and the extragrammatical: Referential
expressions; 
3. Distinguishing codes, explicated, implicated and truth-compatible
inferences; 

Part II. Crossing the Extralinguistic-Linguistic Divide: 
4. Grammar, pragmatics and arbitrariness; 
5. All paths lead to the salient discourse pattern; 
6. The rise (and potential fall) of reflexive pronouns; 

Part III. Bringing Grammar and Pragmatics Back Together: 
7. Grammar/pragmatics interfaces. 


Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
