About this product
- DescriptionSense and Sensitivity explores the semantic and pragmatic effects of focus in natural language discourse. The book concentrates on focus sensitivity, the remarkable dependency some words have on the effects of focus. An example is only : compare She only LIKES me (i.e. nothing deeper) to She only likes ME (i.e. nobody else).
