|Summary||Paul Grice coined the term 'implicature' and the two sub-categories of it: conventional implicature and conversational implicature. Implicatures are what a speaker meant in addition to or instead of what was literally said. This leaf contains any papers on implicature that are general in nature or not according to Grice's typology.|
|Key works||Bianchi 2013 examines "the explicit/implicit distinction, the Gricean notion of implicature (conventional and conversational) and its recent developments and connections with the speaker's intentions, communicative responsibility and rationality."|
