2. Takahiro Otsu, Multifunctionality of After All: A Unitary Account, Journal of Pragmatics,, 134, 102-122, 2018.09, 英語の談話標識after allについてこれまで考えられてきた多義性を関連性理論の手続き的制約の枠組みでの一義的定義を試みた。本論文では、関連性理論において長い間提唱されてきたBlakemoreの定義を修正し、文頭、文中、文末に生じるafter allはすべて
'O P after all Q'という推論スキーマにおいて、「evidence(Q)はpreppies assumption (O)とconclusion (P)の間の矛盾を解決するコンテクストを構築するよう聞き手に指図する手続き的制約を符号化していると結論づけた。また、この一義的定義により、日本語で「結局」と訳される文末のafter allと「だって」と訳される文頭のafter allの手続き的意味が同じであることが説明可能である。.
