Semantics versus Pragmatics

Zoltan Gendler Szabo


This book contains a collection of ten chapters by philosophers and linguists on how semantics and pragmatics relate to one another. Some discuss the distinction directly; others approach it indirectly by arguing for specific semantic or pragmatic treatments of linguistic phenomena in the twilight zone, such as focus, presupposition, or anaphora.

Keywords: semantics, pragmatics, presupposition, anaphora
