1. Explain, with the help of examples, the meaning of the sentences below.
(a) Implicatures are primary examples of more being communicated than is said, but in order for them to be interpreted, some basic cooperative principle must be assumed in the operation.
(b) there are, however, some circumstances where speakers may not follow the expectations of the cooperative principle.
(c) It is important to note that it is speakers who communicate meaning via implicature and it is listeners who recognize those communicated meaning via inference.
2. Define, using yours own words, the concepts listed:
(a) Illocutionary act
(b) Perlocutionary act
(c) Locutionary act
