Intentions and information in discourse

Nicholas Asher, Alex Lascarides

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper is about the flow of inference between communicative intentions, discourse structure and the domain during discourse processing. We augment a theory of discourse interpretation with a theory of distinct mental attitudes and reasoning about them, in order to provide an account of how the attitudes interact with reasoning about discourse structure.
