Chapter Summary

The majority of papers in this collection touch on the relations between semantics and pragmatics in some way. This is true in particular of all those that deal with aspects of the development and applications of Discourse Representation Theory (DRT), but it also applies to some of the other papers, besides the two that constitute this part. There is a certain partial ordering between interpretation mechanisms and every application of those mechanisms in any complex utterance interpretation event will have to be consistent with that order. Semantics versus Pragmatics is an attempt to explore the methodological implications of its predecessor Free Choice Permission for the ways in which semantics and pragmatics could be related.

Keywords:discourse representation theory (DRT); Pragmatics; Semantics
