Mark Jary, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, Roehampton University, UK

‘Jary’s synthesis of linguistic, cognitive scientific and philosophical insights about assertion, so necessary at this stage of inquiry, is simply masterful: just the right degree of comprehensiveness; meticulous and balanced exegesis; and extreme clarity. There can be no question that this book will now become the point of departure for future studies of assertion as a unified, multifaceted cognitive-social phenomenon.’ - Rob Stainton, University of Western Ontario, Canada Assertion is a term frequently used in linguistics and philosophy but rarely defined. This in-depth study surveys and synthesizes a range of philosophical, linguistic and psychological literature on the topic, and then presents a detailed account of the cognitive processes involved in the interpretation of assertions.
