Kontekst a wspólna płaszczyzna w komunikacji
Context and common ground in communication
Languages of publication
In the paper the author is describing two perspectives of conceiving context. The first is represented by the objective state of affairs and the second by interlocutors’ mental states. The notion of common ground is discussed with focus on its subjective character. On the basis of that term a model of context is being constructed. According to observations made in the article, the common ground, as it is widely perceived in the literature, is a purely theoretical notion which corresponds to neither speaker’s nor audience’s point of view. Moreover, the author is arguing that both objectively and subjectively understood contexts are indispensable and both should be taken into consideration in the analysis of speech acts.
