To this end, I offer a procedure for constructing the context of utterance insofar as it is relevant for quantity reasoning as a game between speaker and hearer. View PDF.

Summary Since Grice's groundbreaking work of the s and s it is widely accepted that a large part of the information communicated by means of linguistic utterances is not coded, but rather inferred on the basis of general pragmatic principles.

We show that, under a unifying model based on signalling games, these interpretative strategies are game-theoretic equilibria when the speaker is known to be respectively minimally and maximally expert in the matter at hand. That is, in this framework the optimal strategy for communication depends on the degree of knowledge the speaker is known to have concerning the question she is answering. In addition, and most importantly, we give a game-theoretic characterisation of the interpretation rule Grice formalising Quantity implicature , showing that under natural conditions this interpretation rule occurs in the unique equilibrium play of the signalling game.
