Rooted in Gricean tradition, this book concentrates on game - and decision - theoretic (GDT) approaches to the foundations of pragmatics. Offering a high-level survey of current GDT pragmatics and the field of its applications, this approach provides a basis for synchronic and diachronic explanations of language use.
