Abstract and Keywords

The aim of this chapter is to provide a state-of-the-art survey of classical and especially neo-Gricean pragmatics, focusing on the bipartite model put forward by Horn and the trinitarian model advanced by Levinson. It assesses the role neo-Gricean pragmatics plays in effecting a radical simplification of the lexicon, semantics, and formal syntax in linguistic theory respectively, covering lexical narrowing, lexical cloning, lexical blocking, and lexicalization asymmetry in logical operators, and concentrating on pragmatic intrusion into what is said, Grice’s circle, and the pragmatics–semantics interface, and anaphora and binding.

Keywords: classical Gricean pragmatics, neo-Gricean pragmatics, neo-Gricean lexical pragmatics, pragmatic intrusion into what is said, pragmatics–syntax interface, revised neo-Gricean pragmatic theory of anaphora
