Summary/Abstract: The chapters included in this book adopt a relevance-theoretic perspective to discuss various topics falling within the domain of cognitive pragmatics. Some authors address important issues at the heart of Relevance Theory itself, such as the core mechanisms of communication and cognition and their relationships to emotions and linguistic form, whereas others attempt to push the existing boundaries of the theory, taking its insights into more uncharted territory, such as human evolution, psychotherapy, the study of the blind, and even the Polish language.
