This is an anthology of readings on the subject of pragmatics - the study of actual utterances or `speaker's intended meaning'. Pragmatics is relevant to a variety of disciplines and specializations, including linguistics, poetics, the philosophy of language, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and psychology.

Davis's collection brings together the most important literature on pragmatics, including classic papers as well as the work of the best contemporary theorists. The selections are organized according to such topics as conversational implicature and relevance, speaker reference, indexicals, presupposition, direct and indirect speech acts, and non-literal uses of language. Informal and philosophical, rather than formal or technical, approaches to pragmatics are emphasized.

Review:

`a very well-conceived anthology'John Perry, Stanford University`Such a book is long overdue'Kent Bach, San Francisco State University`a good, solid, well-balanced volume'Radu Bogdan, Tulane University

`It is with some gratitude that we turn to Steven Davis for editing a first collection of canonical texts the knowledge of which any self-respecting pragmaticist should have, presumably, at his or her fingertips ... This is a good collection for argumentative types. It might even provoke one of them to edit and introduce his or her own selection of canonical texts.'International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching

`this collection serves admirably, and will endure, both as a reference work and as a teaching tool in advanced courses in language theory'Journal of Literary Semantics
