Segerdahl (philosophy, Uppsala U., Sweden) investigates the relationships between meaning and inference in practical language from the view of a pragmatic philosophical approach. He details the fundamental conceptual framework of pragmatic research fields: deixis, implicatures, speech acts, and presuppositions. Within this context he deals specifically with the notions of linguistic relativity, the use of irony and metaphor, literal meaning, and the relation of linguistics to language philosophy.
