During the last decade, connectionism has increasingly received attention within a variety of research disciplines. In this contribution, we focus on the role of connectionist modeling within the domain of natural language processing (NLP) and, more specifically, on pragmatics. As a computational theory, connectionism has led to significant developments in modeling cognitive processes. Rumelhart & McClelland, in their influential two-volume handbook, characterize connectionist modeling as providing
