The central notion that dominated linguistic pragmatics since the
early seventies is Grice's notion of conversational implicature. It
is based on the insight that, by means of general principles of
rational communication, we may convey more with the use of a sentence
than just its conventional meaning. What is actually conveyed depends
on the utterance situation, the linguistic context, and the goals and
preferences of the interlocutors. Hence, what is actually meant may
deviate in various ways from what is literally said. Over the last few
years there is a renewed interest in Gricean pragmatics from different
theoretical perspectives. This comprises work in a dynamic framework,
non-monotonic reasoning, and optimality and game theoretic approaches.
The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and
researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues and
researchers who work in the broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.
