The discovery of contextually relevant web services is crucial to business organisations. Pragmatics (in terms of communication acts) and semiotics (the understanding of signs), intersect at an important point in relation to textual entities. The intersection of pragmatics and semiotics provides the fabric essential to model the interaction between humans and norm-based agents by moving beyond the traditional two-role communication loop model found in the Language/Action Perspective to a proposed multi-responsive model to discover appropriate web services in Service Oriented Architecture contexts.
