Abstract:

How hearers arrive at intended meaning, which elements encode processing
instructions in certain languages, how procedural meaning and prosody
interact, how diverse types of utterances are interpreted, how epistemic
vigilance mechanisms work, which linguistic elements assist those mechanisms,
how a critical attitude to information and informers develops when a second
language is learnt, or why some perlocutionary effects originate are some of
the varied issues that have intrigued pragmatists, and relevance theorists in
particular, and continue to fuel research. In this collection readers will
discover new proposals based on the cognitive framework put forward by Dan
Sperber and Deirdre Wilson three decades ago. Their gripping, insightful and
stimulating discussions, combined in some cases with meticulous and in-depth
analyses, show the directions relevance theory has recently followed.
Moreover, this collection also unveils fruitful and promising interactions
with areas like morphology, prosody, language typology, interlanguage
pragmatics, machine translation, or rhetoric and argumentation, and avenues
for future research.
