Interpreting Certain Adverbs: Semantics or Pragmatics?
Lehrer, Adrienne
Journal of Linguistics, 11, 2, 239-248, Sep 75

The line between pragmatics and semantics is not sharp, and a language theory is needed that can predict and explain borderline cases without forcing them into arbitrary established categories. (CHK)
