The speed of inference page 1 The speed of inference: Evidence against rapid use of context in calculation of scalar implicatures

Abstract

Are pragmatic inferences necessarily the result of complex, contextually-dependent computations? Or are some computed in a heuristic, context-free manner? If context plays any role, when and how is contextual information integrated? A central test case for exploring pragmatic processing addressing these questions has been scalar implicature (e.g., the… (More)
