Pragmatics is a subfield of linguistics and semiotics that studies the ways in which context contributes to meaning. Pragmatics encompasses speech act theory, conversational implicature, talk in interaction and other approaches to language behavior in philosophy, sociology, linguistics and anthropology. Unlike semantics, which examines meaning that is conventional or “coded” in a given language, pragmatics studies how the transmission of meaning depends not only on structural and linguistic knowledge (grammar, lexicon, etc.) of the speaker and listener but also on the context of the utterance, any pre-existing knowledge about those involved, the inferred intent of the speaker, and other factors. In that respect, pragmatics explains how language users are able to overcome apparent ambiguity since meaning relies on the manner, place, time, etc. of an utterance.


PRAGMATICS IS: The ability to understand another speaker’s intended meaning is called pragmatic competence.

18-12-2019: We have conducted a DEMO, simulating several conversations and vocal interactions in order to find the right restaurant and requested HIO Assistant to make calls and finalize reservations for all kind of restaurants located in various international cities where English is well spoken on average. Once gathered all the user’s requirements, HIO interacted with restaurant managers and owners with the objective to book a table. The DEMO started in June (175 calls) and went on in the next months (total around 3000 calls).
