The Pragmatic Roots of Context [chapter]

Bruce Edmonds
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Context is an abstraction of the collection of background features that are later recognised.  ...  Given this, there are (at least) two ways of modelling context: one can either attempt to investigate the contexts that arise out of the heuristics that a particular agent actually applies (the 'internal  ...  The research reported here was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council of the United Kingdom under contract number R000236179 and by the Faculty of Management and Business, Manchester Metropolitan  ...

Pragmatic Requirements for Adaptive Systems: a Goal-Driven Modelling and Analysis Approach [article]

Felipe Pontes Guimarães and Genaina Nunes Rodrigues and Raian Ali and Daniel Macêdo Batista
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we observe that the interpretation of a goal achievement is itself context-dependent. Thus, we introduce the notion of Pragmatic Goals which have a dynamic satisfaction criteria.  ...  Contextual GM (CGM) extend these models with the notion of context and context-dependent applicability of goals.  ...  The algorithm considers the root node of the CGM (line 1) and checks whether the root goal is itself applicable under the current context (line 2), returning NULL if it is not (line 3).  ...

The aim of this commentary is to underpin Duffley's notion of a stable mental content that corresponds to the literal word meaning with a computationally plausible cognitive theory.  ...  We argue that recent advances in cognitive science can make at least two contributions to the debate. First, they can provide some underpinning of Duffley's ideas of a stable linguistic meaning  ...  Still, maybe the abstract (root node) meaning of the isolated (context free) "safe" is something like "free of the risk of something bad happening to it".  ...

My notion of stable word meaning could correspond either to the root-node or the whole of a neurally-organized package and acknowledge that linguistic processing is largely holistic.  ...  The existence of words as context-free entities is not just a "cognitive idealization" however but a necessity, as otherwise speakers would have to make up their words on the spot.  ...  contexts, etc).  ...

This study therefore morpho-pragmatically analyzed the diminutives of Ekegusii language with the view of exploring their markers, examining various meanings that they convey within and outside contexts  ...  Diminutives can express different meanings in different contexts. However, there is little documented evidence on morpho-pragmatic analysis of diminutives in Ekegusii language.  ...  Pragmatics refers to the study of meaning in context (Grice, 1975) . It is a sub-field of linguistics that studies how context affects meaning.  ...

Pragmatics: The Cornerstone of Linguistic Exploration in the 21st Century

This study investigates into the relevance of context in the interpretation of linguistic entities.  ...  Pragmatics, a field concerned with the study of language in relation to the context, was earlier conceived as a 'waste-basket' or "a rag-bag into which recalcitrant data could be conveniently stuffed,  ...  Pragmaticism, on the other hand, prioritises a pragmatic account of meaning at the expense of a semantic account of meaning. iii.  ...

Foreword [chapter]

2022 Toward a Motivation Model of Pragmatics  
Given the "charge" of pragmatics -studying language use in context -we have claimed (and should continue to claim) territorial rights on all things language.  ...  This monograph is a proposal of a theoretical model, called "the motivation model of pragmatics" (MMP).  ...  Little wonder that, of the three major divisions in the study of language -semantics, syntax, and pragmatics -carved out by Morris, pragmatics emerged from virtual non-existence before the 1960s to have  ...

Therefore this goal becomes the root of a new context model, as shown in Figure 6; Satisfy-Language-Req(IS) is marked as the new current focus of attention, as indicated by the asterisk preceding it.  ...  The other previous context model, whose root was Satisfy-Major(IS, BS, CS), is discarded, indicating that IS’s third utterance has led us to deduce that he wants to pursue a bachelor of arts degree.  ...
