Psychology of Pragmatic Implication: Information Processing Between the Lines
Harris, Richard J.; Monaco, Gregory E.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 107, 1, 1-22, Mar 78
Takes an in-depth look at the probabilistic nature of human communication, i.e, the misinterpretation of the language-producer message by the language comprehender. Reviews the psycho-linguistic, linguistic and philosophical literature dealing with this aspect of language and demonstrates that this misinterpretation is related to a basic process of the hearer's information-processing system.
