The paper investigates the cognitive and semantic nature of vagueness, unspecificity, and approximation (vagueness related phenomena) by examining some of the linguistic expressions connected with these phenomena in English, Swedish and Italian. Certain mental states during discourse production (like hesitation, hastiness, word search) are also investigated.

Abstract

The paper investigates the cognitive and semantic nature of vagueness, unspecificity, and approximation (vagueness related phenomena) by examining some of the linguistic expressions connected with these phenomena in English, Swedish and Italian. Certain mental states during discourse production (like hesitation, hastiness, word search) are also investigated.
