Introduction
Deirdre Wilson is Emeritus Professor of Linguistics at University College London and a former co-director (with Herman Cappelen) of the Linguistic Agency project at CSMN, University of Oslo. Her main research interests are in communication: her long-standing collaboration with Dan Sperber ('Relevance: Communication and Cognition', Blackwell, 1986/95; 'Meaning and Relevance', Cambridge University Press, 2012) has led to publications on a wide variety of pragmatic topics, from disambiguation and reference resolution to rhetoric, and style. Her novel 'Slave of the Passions' (Picador, 1991) was shortlisted for two prizes, and she recently co-edited (with Terence Cave) 'Reading Beyond the Code: Literature and Relevance Theory' (OUP).
