Default Semantics

Foundations of a Compositional Theory of Acts of Communication

K. M. Jaszczolt

In this pioneering book Kasia Jaszczolt lays down the foundations of an original theory of meaning in discourse, reveals the cognitive foundations of discourse interpretation, and puts forward a new basis for the analysis of discourse processing. She provides a step-by-step introduction to the theory and its application, and explains new terms and formalisms as required. This is a book for students and researchers in semantics, pragmatics, computational linguistics, and philosophy of language at advanced undergraduate level and above.
