- “relax to below XX”, pragmatics, semantics, context, presupposition
- There are scholars who think that “relax to below XX” is a mixed sentence pattern. However, by reorganizing and investigating the linguistic data in CCL and BCC corpus, and reanalyzing the structure from the perspective of the background of pragmatic discourse and the presupposition of speakers and receivers, it is found that “relax to below XX” and relevant structures conform to pragmatic norms.
