Such shorter-ranging mental structure does not fit neatly in the definition of higher-level explicature, so two possible solutions are proposed in order to accommodate it within the relevance-theoretic notional apparatus, the second of which could involve a refinement of the distinction between lower- and higher-level explicatures. Moreover, that type of constituent-directed description is shown to be also enacted by other expressives and other linguistic expressions, and to be constructed in other communicative acts. Finally, since the words functioning as expressive APs and expletive NPs come from various l...
