Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (2-3) (2020)

The review of Noveck’s Experimental Pragmatics shows that the book is a much-needed synthesis. It provides a mostly ToM- and Grice-based interpretation of experimental results in scalar inference, deixis, and logical errors. The main missing points are related to an almost exclusively descriptive view of language, and the under-elaboration of the issue of the background of knowledge processes. Rather than as a whole, the book shall be a central starting point for further broader approaches to the emerging field of experimental research in pragmatics.
