Abstract

This paper critically revisits the recent volume entitled “Intercultural Pragmatics” by Istvan Kecskes in the context of the Gricean notions which offer bedrock assumptions for a number of postulates put forward by the author. Attention is paid to the Gricean view of the Cooperative Principle, the speaker’s intention and speaker meaning, as well as the status of what is said, in tandem with their conceptualisations in intercultural pragmatics.
