Abduction, Belief and Context in Dialogue: Studies in Computational Pragmatics.
Bunt, Harry C. and Black, William. John Benjamins.
Amsterdam. 2000.

Pragmatics studies language use, and particularly linguistic communication, in relation to context. For communication to work, hearers must recognize speakers' communicative intentions, whereby the connection between intentions and sentences relies on a shared system of beliefs and inferences. Communication is also a social affair, relying on a shared conception of the context situation. Current computational applications are mostly dialogue systems and text generation systems.
