This is the one where the optimistic Sperber and Wilson try to provide a succcinct introduction to their theory, but it gets into waters that benefit from being explored at length and thus I recommend their book Relevance instead; or, their other papers that extend specific aspects of the theory (some reviewed by me of late) answer questions about the difference between literal and figurative language use under RT or about the difference between determining optimum relevance given a generic speaker capable of producing the optimally relevant speech for you as listener at any given time, and the real case, where speakers fall short of optimum relevance always due to their own abilities/shortcomings/proclivities. This is maybe a bit vague as a review but I'm just saying this paper covers interesting stuff but too much too fast. Handbook of Pragmatics. ( )
