After a generation in which psychologists and linguists devoted themselves to narrow, arcane specialties, there has been a recent return to addressing the "big questions". The essays presented here show a concern with more "common sense" problems of language, with a domain of discourse that includes stories, jokes, conversations and figurative language. In addition to historical and theoretical perspectives, a number of neuropsychological studies address the consequences of brain damage for discourse capacities. Annotation c.
