To the extent that the debate about it isn't entirely terminological (e.g., many years ago "pragmatics" was the name for indexical semantics), the main substantive matter of dispute is whether there is such a thing as "pragmatic intrusion," whereby pragmatic factors allegedly contribute to semantic interpretation.

Brinton rejects the idea that pragmatic markers undergo lexicalization on the grounds that this suggests that they are agrammatical (see also Traugott, ).
