Editorial Reviews


Dr Billy Clark, Middlesex University
extremely interesting and original...the majority of researchers interested in this topic are explicitly aware of the fact that it crosses the boundary between (linguistics and philosophy). This book clearly crosses that boundary and seems to have a broader scope than most works in this area.

Alessandro Tavano, University of Trieste
Default Semantics nevertheless represents an attempt at bridging the gap between actual uses of utterances in communication, which seem intuitively governed by default rules, and theoretical descriptions, which require an explicit model to fit non homogeneous data. This book makes it clear that Default Semantics represents an interesting attempt to propose a unified theory of utterance meaning.

Frank Brisard
...of interest to linguists, philosophers of language (and of mind), social anthropologists, and cognitive scientists.
Alessandro Capone
I believe that this is an extremely coherent and well argued book. I am persuaded that the reader will find it rich in ideas and very instructive. I am also sure it will bear fruit in due time and have some very important ramifications....I want to recomend this book wholeheartedly..
