9780080430607: Discourse, Beliefs and Intentions: Semantic Defaults and Propositional Attitude Ascription (Current Research in the Semantics/Pragmatics Interface)

This book is about beliefs, language, communication and cognition. It deals with the fundamental issue of the interpretation of the speaker's utterance expressing a belief and reporting on beliefs of other people in the form of oratio obliqua. The main aim of the book is to present a new account of the problem of interpreting utterances expressing beliefs and belief reports in terms of an approach called Default Semantics.

Review:

Dr Billy Clark, Middlesex University
extremely interesting and original...the majority of researchers interested in this topic are explicitly aware of the fact that it crosses the boundary between (linguistics and philosophy). This book clearly crosses that boundary and seems to have a broader scope than most works in this area.

Alessandro Tavano, University of Trieste
Default Semantics nevertheless represents an attempt at bridging the gap between actual uses of utterances in communication, which seem intuitively governed by default rules, and theoretical descriptions, which require an explicit model to fit non homogeneous data. This book makes it clear that Default Semantics represents an interesting attempt to propose a unified theory of utterance meaning.
Linguist list
Frank Brisard
...of interest to linguists, philosophers of language (and of mind), social anthropologists, and cognitive scientists.
Pragmatics
Alessandro Capone
I believe that this is an extremely coherent and well argued book. I am persuaded that the reader will find it rich in ideas and very instructive. I am also sure it will bear fruit in due time and have some very important ramifications....I want to recomend this book wholeheartedly..
Pragmatics and Cognition, volume nine, number two
