Meaning in Linguistic Interaction

Kasia M. Jaszczolt

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 revisits the concept of default interpretations, addressing the question of context-independent and context-driven salience, the role of salience in primary meanings, and presents some evidence from cancellability in favour of the primary/secondary vis-à-vis explicit/implicit meaning distinction. It concludes with remarks on the appropriate degree and form of psychologism that a semantic theory ought to subscribe to.

Keywords:   default, default interpretation, context, salience, primary meaning, cancellability, explicit/implicit meaning, psychologism
