This chapter introduces the idea of meaning-encoded constraints on appropriate use, hereinafter labelled as ‘bias’. It begins with the case of simple interjections, and it continues with instances involving occurrences of ‘alas’ or ‘hurray’ in apparently sentential contexts. Section three presents the idea of ‘unindexed’ settlement, that is, it discusses cases of settlement grounded on bias, rather than on the regularities of use. The last section contains a preliminary discussion of the phenomenon of nondisplaceability, an important companion for the Theory of Bias.

Keywords:   interjections, bias, settlement, nondisplaceability
