The last two decades have seen “Experimental Pragmatics” emerge as one of the most exciting and interdisciplinary linguistic disciplines. The field combines technological advances in data acquisition with formal pragmatic models and has already made rapid progress in numerous age-old areas of pragmatics, especially implicatures, reference, vagueness, and presupposition theory. One area where progress has been limited is cross-linguistic pragmatic study, for geographical reasons: Experimental Pragmatics originated in Europe, particularly in Germany. In this respect, as a well-studied and non-European language, Japanese represents an ideal cross-cultural comparative language. Within this context, this volume presents a collection of papers with illuminating research outcomes from Japanese and European research collaborations. The editors and authors hope that this volume stimulates discussions in these exciting linguistic fields.
