Philosophy of Language
Links:

Synopsis:
  • The speaker and the hearer cooperate
  • Language has meaning to the extent that some conventions hold within the linguistic community
  • The speaker wants to be understood and cause an action
  • Conversational implicature: what a speaker implies
  • Four maxims help the speaker say more than what she is saying
  • There is more to a sentence than its meaning: a sentence is "used" for a purpose
