Grice’s pragmatics in generative and cognitive traditions
Abstract. The article aims to present the linguistic vision of Paul Grice – a philosopher and linguist considered to be one of the fathers of pragmatics, from the perspective of two most influential theories of the 20th century linguistics, namely generativism and cognitivism. The investigations are based upon the presumption that both paradigms have to address the issues of pragmatic nature in order to be plausible. The author will also consider two brand new areas of linguistic investigation, namely cognitive and modular pragmatics, as attempts to reconcile pragmatics with cognitivism and generativism, respectively.
Key words: Grice, generativism, cognitivism, pragmatics
