Based on Pragmatics Approach, there is one of the principle that involves in communication. It is cooperative principle. This principle consists of 4 maxims. There are maxim of quality (Truthful), maxim of quantity (Informative), maxim of relation (relevant), and maxim of manner (clear). the question is: Can Grice's Maxims be applied on written texts If yes, are there any studies; articles, dissertations so far?
Grice's Maxims– jlawlerNov 13, 2013 at 0:48
3I difficult to emphasise how MASSIVE Grice's impact has been, and how much work in a variety of disciplines treats it as foundational. In short, yes, there are no doubt thousands of pieces of work applying Gricean pragmatics to written text. I hate to be that guy, but try googling it.– P ElliottNov 13, 2013 at 1:46
