Procedural Meaning and the Semantics/ Pragmatics Interface
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||Relevance theorists have argued that we must distinguish between words that encode concepts and those that encode procedures. The latter encode instructions that constrain the inferential phase of verbal communication. (This is explained in more detail below). This raises the question as to how we are to understand the notion of procedural encoding. I will argue that the notion of a procedural unit is something that has a place in an account of language use, and hence it belongs to a theory of pragmatic performance and not to a theory of semantic competence|
