Visions and Revisions

Studies in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics


Przemysław Łozowski and Katarzyna Stadnik

The papers reflect on «visions» and «revisions» of selected theoretical and applied linguistic issues. Methodologically, they all reflect and contribute to the polarization between form- and substance-oriented approaches that are typically identified with, respectively, structural and functional paradigms. The diversity of standpoints exemplified and the divergence of operational tools employed make the volume a representative spectrum of the on-going developments in how language is conceptualized and analyzed as both an abstract entity and as a medium of communication, language teaching and learning included. For this reason, the readers will find as much of structural considerations as of functional reflections and practical applications.

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
