Handbuch Pragmatik pp Cite as. Relevance theory is a cognitively-oriented pragmatic theory that aims at providing a psychologically realistic account of utterance interpretation. Originally developed by Dan Sperber and Deirdre Wilson , it has in the last few decades been one of the leading frameworks for pragmatics research. I then review some of the main applications of relevance theory linguistic underdetermination, the explicit-implicit distinction, lexical pragmatics and procedural meaning , and discuss some questions that are the focus of current research in these areas, both from within relevance theory and by advocates of alternative approaches such as semantic minimalism or indexicalism.
Relevance : communication and cognition
Relevance theory is a framework for understanding utterance interpretation first proposed by Dan Sperber and Deirdre Wilson and used within cognitive linguistics and pragmatics. It was originally inspired by the work of H. Paul Grice and developed out of his ideas, but has since become a pragmatic framework in its own right. The seminal book, Relevance , was first published in and revised in The impact of their work is seen by the fact that Google Scholar lists over 21, citations of this book. Relevance theory aims to explain the well recognised fact that communicators usually convey much more information with their utterances than what is contained in their literal sense.

In this bold and highly controversial book, Sperber and Wilson attempt to shift the whole centre of gravity of pragmatic theory by locating it firmly in a general theory of cognition. Outlining that general theory takes the bulk of the book, so those who have followed technical developments in pragmatics will not find those issues much advanced here.

We outline the main assumptions of the current version of the theory and discuss some of its implications for pragmatics [ PDF version ]. In Horn, L.
