This chapter describes the framework of equilibrium semantics. The discussions cover aspects of meaning; the four constraints by which language and its use may be viewed (syntactic constraint, conventional constraint, informational constraint, flow constraint); equilibrium semantics and locutionary meaning; equilibrium semantics and illocutionary meaning; meaning and the Gricean properties; the interdependence of locutionary and illocutionary meanings; computing meaning; the garden path sentence; the universality of games of partial information; and the concept of strategic inference.

Keywords:   language, locutionary meaning, illocutionary meaning, garden path sentence, partial information, strategic inference
