Thesis Abstract

This study, tagged with (Conversational implicature in the Novel of Escape to
the Summit) by Ahmed Al-Zawiti, deals with the phenomenon of Dialogue
Implications by (Paul Grace) in research, authentication, accuracy and analysis,
from a theoretical and applied pragmatics perspective. The first represented the
study of the term and its related origins and concepts. The second represented
an applied study of selected models of dialogues in which the principles of
conversational implicature were violated in the novel; And that is to reveal the
implicit (necessary) meanings that the speakers wanted to convey to the
addressee indirectly in this speech, and that was according to a descriptive
analytical approach, and through these questions: What is the conversational
implicature? What are the rules that govern the course of dialogue? What are
the implicit meanings behind the dialogues that the writer resorted to in his novel
on the lips of the characters?
The study was organized into two chapters, preceded by an introduction,
followed by a conclusion with the results of the study. Investigations, and the
second chapter deals with (the manifestations of other principles that
complement Grace’s rules in the novel), and it also includes four sections, and
the conclusion recorded the most important results of the study.
One of the most important results of the study was: The origins of the
theory of conversational implicature were well known to the ancients, even if
they were scattered in their writings. The deliberative theory took the lead in
setting it as a theory with codified foundations and principles. The principles that
the researcher dealt with are five, namely: the principle of (cooperation,
politeness, confrontation, maximum politeness, and approval), and the number
of models in which these principles were violated (sixty) models. That is, for
each base (nine) models. In the second chapter, which was devoted to
principles other than Grace’s principle, which are four principles, the researcher
presented (twenty-four) models, that is, approximately (six) models for each
principle, bringing the total models studied in the novel (sixty) models.
