Description:

Studies on the nature of quotation have become a topic of growing interest

status of quotations? How can an analysis of quotation help to develop a
general theory of the semantics-pragmatics interface? This volume is a
collection of original papers by leading researchers in the field on such issues
and related linguistic and philosophical aspects of quotations.
