1. Introduction

J. L. Speranza is an Italian born in the pampas who has dedicated his life so far to Gricing this and that. He holds (in the wall of his room) a doctorate [Spe95] from the University of Buenos Aires on Grice - ``Pragmatica Griceana''. (This, he regrets, while recognised by Western Educational Services alright - has been translated as ``Grecian Pragmatics'' - but he don't (sic) mind. He has written extensively, but more recently, spoken extensively on matters Gricean at the Grice Club which he created just to annoy Dan Sperber.
