An edict or decree issued by a sovereign that becomes part of the fundamental law of the land. (1713) Decree by Emperor Charles VI requiring the undivided descent of his Habsburg domains. It stipulated that his heritage go to his eldest son or, in the absence of a son, to his eldest daughter. It became law in 1720 within the Habsburg states, and much of Charles's later reign was directed toward securing acceptance of the sanction from the other European powers. Since his son died soon after birth (1716), his daughter Maria Theresa became his heir. On Charles's death (1740), the sanction was contested by Prussia and Bavaria, which led to the War of the Austrian Succession

pragmatics
Pragmatics is the branch of linguistics that deals with the meanings and effects which come from the use of language in particular situations. the study of how words and phrases are used with special meanings in particular situations. In linguistics and philosophy, the study of the use of natural language in communication; more generally, the study of the relations between languages and their users. It is sometimes defined in contrast with linguistic semantics, which can be described as the study of the rule systems that determine the literal meanings of linguistic expressions. Pragmatics is then the study of how both literal and nonliteral aspects of communicated linguistic meaning are determined by principles that refer to the physical or social context (broadly construed) in which language is used. Among these aspects are conversational and conventional "implicatures" (e.g., "John has three sons" conversationally implicates that John has no more than three sons; "He was poor but honest" conventionally implicates an unspecified contrast between poverty and honesty). Other aspects include metaphor and other tropes and speech acts
