lt is by now an axiom that translation and interpretation are forms of
mediated interlingual communication, whereby both analysis of the originai and
production of the target te x t are govemed by hypertextual (in tbe skopostheorie
sense of tbe term) and macrotextual analyses based upon tbe relevant features of
tbe situation. A crucial component of sucb analyses is tbe structure of
explicatures and implicatures and, more relevantly, the way that, within the
limits of bis rhetorical competence, a writer/speaker chooses his explicitations
as a function of wbat be assumes is a) not necessary to make explicit, b) not
advisable to make explicit - and vice versa. The author is counting on bis
addressees to put the two they read/hear and tbe two they know/assume/can infer
together in order to apprehend his intended sense (see Viaggio 1996).
