    Theory of Mind, Pragmatics and the Brain.Ivan Enrici, Bruno G. Bara & Mauro Adenzato - 2019 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (1):5-38.
    Theory of Mind is a neurocognitive system that allows the perceiver to attribute mental states, such as intentions, beliefs, or feelings, to others’ actions. The aim of the present work is to analyse the engagement of the ToM system in communication, in particular, in communicative intention processing. To this aim, we propose an Intention Processing Network with its own principles and mechanisms, that is, a brain network differentially engaged according to the complex intertwining of the context, goal, and action involved.

    What is an Indirect Speech Act?Jörg Meibauer - 2019 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (1):61-84.

In recent years, two debates about indirect speech acts have stood out. First, a debate about the Searlean idea that indirect speech acts constitute a simultaneous realization of a secondary and a primary act. Second, a debate about the reasons for the (...)

    Indirect Reporting and Pragmatically Enriched Context.Olga A. Obdalova, Ludmila Yu Minakova & Aleksandra V. Soboleva - 2019 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (1):85-111.
    This article examines the pragmatic comprehensibility of indirect reporting. The research problem is to determine how Russian EFL learners are able to turn original utterances expressing the intentions of native speakers of American English in direct speech into indirect reports to a third party. Two major issues are analyzed: adequacy of semantic content and preservation of pragmatic enrichment. The study was carried out employing the framework of Kecskes’ Socio-Cognitive Approach. Twelve stimulus-utterances belonging to three communicative types were video-recorded. Qualitative and (...)
