Pragmatic Linguistics is Begging to be Formalized

In "Elements of Narrative" I write:
 "I  find  that what  I  call narrative structure not only meets the requirements for a Sematic Frame as described by [Fillmore 3], but also gives a more specific representation to some of the ideas of semantic implicature [Grice 4] and semantic underderminacy [Carston 5, Belleri 6]. "
I should have added - "an area of pragmatic linguistics that is begging to be formalized."
