Linguistics and ignorance [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Research on the concept of “ignorance” and its societal and epistemic status has been going on for some years now in philosophy, sociology and psychology as well as in communication and media studies. This chapter seeks to explore ways of addressing ignorance from a systematic linguistics perspective. A number of instructive studies from other disciplines do exist: despite having a completely different methodological emphasis they are nonetheless related to such a linguistic approach in that they complement and extend it. Given that the discipline of linguistics is concerned with linguistic signs, their rules of use, their history and the function they perform i.e. their role in specific texts and conversations, what is it about ignorance that is of interest to linguistics scholars? Thus any linguistics research program set up to explore the communication of ignorance will consist not only of a range of questions to be addressed but also suggestions for a potential set of methods to do so.
