How Words Mean

Vyvyan Evans (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter is concerned with the final compositional process in LCCM Theory: interpretation. Interpretation involves activation of conceptual content, in a way that is in keeping with the linguistic content associated with the lexical conceptual unit(s) in the utterance, and the interpretation associated with other lexical concepts in the utterance. The chapter provides detailed exemplification of the range of principles which govern the operation of interpretation.

Keywords:   interpretation, conceptual content, utterance, operation of interpretation
