4 These results may imply that there is a relatively high degree of correlation between high frequency and “cognitive salience” as far as the frequent verbs in English imperatives are concerned. Some (cognitive) linguists have equated high frequency distribution with psychological prominence. That is, what is frequent in language is sometimes claimed to come first to mind, hence being most salient (cf. Geeraerts 1988; Schmid 2000). However, recent research finds that this is not necessarily the case, since frequency and cognitive salience do not always coincide (cf.

Deception, p. 350) (9) a. b. Chapter 2. Observing English imperatives in action d. “Now, Dr. ”  (Deception, p. 355) There appears to be a verbal response to the let-imperative in (9a, b). As a matter of act, this is not the case. To take an instance of (9a), the addressee’s utterance “Right” responds to the message that immediately follows – “You said Sarge said the boys in the West Wing are talking about me. ,” not to “Let’s talk quick”. ”. 6 In the other pattern, the let’s-imperative comes at the end of the entire dialogue to propose a reasonable course of action or final decision for both parties.

A similar account holds for the broken arrow drawn in light grey. The configuration of this schema is intended to apply to all uses of the imperative, including not only such standard uses as Come on in or Meet Bob but also such non-standard uses as concessions as in Double your offer (and I won’t sell) or discourse interactive or interjectional uses as in let me see or look as well. In the latter cases, Force Exertion as it is defined here for this study is virtually absent and consequentially little or no causality is involved between the two events (cf.
