Abstract

This article addresses the issue of non-verbal communication in the light of the Gricean conceptualisation of intentionally conveyed meanings. The first goal is to testify that non-verbal cues can be interpreted as nonnatural meanings and speaker meanings, which partake in intentional communication. Secondly, it is argued that non-verbal signals, exemplified by gestures, are similar to utterances which generate the communicator’s what is said and/or conversational implicatures, together with their different subtypes and manifestations. Both of these objectives necessitate a critical overview of Grice’s work on the focal aspects of meaning and communication, also on the strength of neo-Gricean research.
