Proceedings of the 12th conference on Computational linguistics -
Much work in current research in the field of semanticpragmatic analysis has been concerned with the interpretation of natural language utterances in the context of dialogs. In this paper, however, we will present methods for a primary pragmatic analysis of single utterances. Our investigations involve problems which are not currently well understood, for example how to infer the speaker's intentions by using interpretation of connectives and modal verbs.doi:10.3115/991635.991674 fatcat:fscy7sb3zjbm3bjgbq465a4bpu
