While implicatures are inherently strategic, assumptions may be strategic. This type of implicature arises from what Grice called the `flouting' of a maxim — apparently breaking a maxim, but adhering to it on an implicit level of meaning. To take a classic example, if I write in a reference for an academic post only that the candidate is `well-dressed and punctual', this appears to break the maxims of Quantity (it doesn't provide enough information) and Relevance (what information it does provide is not relevant).

There is no diplomacy with Bin Laden or the Taliban regime. State an ultimatum and get their response. We stated the ultimatum, they haven 't responded. Understand the causes of terror. Yes, we should try, but let there be no moral ambiguity about this: nothing could ever justify the events of 11 September, and it is to turn justice on its head to pretend it could.

People differ in all sorts of ways, and orientation to difference is fundamental to social interaction. Giddens suggested in one of his earlier books that `the production of interaction has three fundamental elements: its constitution as "meaningful"; its constitution as a moral order; and its constitution as the operation of relations of power' (1993:104). Orientation to difference is central to the account of these three elements which he went on to give. The production of interaction as meaningful entails active and continual `negotiation' of differences of meaning; the `norms' of interaction as a moral order are oriented to and interpreted differently by different social actors, and these differences are negotiated.
