Abstract and Keywords

This Introduction briefly tracks the emergence of research in semantics and pragmatics that employs paradigms from experimental psychology, from foundational work in the 1970s to the flourishing community conducting ‘experimental semantics and pragmatics’ today. The Handbook, the first in this field, aspires to be comprehensive in terms of the topics and methodologies covered, to be forward-looking in its identification of avenues for further investigation, and to be accessible to a broad audience, inviting researchers from linguistics, psychology, and other backgrounds to engage with these issues.

Keywords: Semantics, pragmatics, experiments, psychology, methodology
