Summary:The ability to convey meaning is a fundamental property of human language. Three main aspects, in particular, have drawn the attention of linguists: semantic meaning, that is, the content that is conventionally associated with words; pragmatic meaning, that is, the integration of semantic meaning with information from the communicative context in which a sentence is used; and social meaning (Eckert 2008), the package of stances, socio/psychological features and stereotypes that linguistic forms index about the speakers who typically use them. This dissertation aims to cast light on the interaction between these components by looking at two intensifiers that cut across all such domains of meaning: " totally" in English and "-issimo" in Italian. (Abstract shortened by ProQuest.).
