Summary

With Robyn Carston's pragmatics at the core of the discussion, special attention is drawn to linguistic under-determinacy, the explicit/implicit divide and also to the construction or recruitment of concepts in on-line utterance comprehension.

Summary expansion
This collection of essays brings about a current interdisciplinary debate on explicit communication. The organising theme of the volume is to address issues related to the work of Robyn Carston, or to provide a critical appraisal of some aspect of her work. As it happens, Carston's research is at the focal point of a very large and lively cross-disciplinary debate on linguistic underdeterminacy, the explicit/implicit divide and the construction or recruitment of concepts in online utterance comprehension. These are particularly contentious topics taking in linguists, philosophers and cognitive scientists and this volume brings us up to date with key parts of the current debate on them. Chapters are contributed by distinguished specialists, and the final chapter by Carston herself is a really excellent and thorough response to all of the chapters in the book, woven into a very interesting and in many ways novel 'position statement' on Carston's part
