The Routledge Handbook of Pragmatics | Anne Barron, Yueguo Gu, Gerard Steen (Eds.)
The Routledge Handbook of Pragmatics provides a state-of-the-art overview of the wide breadth of research in pragmatics. An introductory section outlines a brief history, the main issues and key approaches and perspectives in the field, followed by a thought-provoking introductory chapter on interdisciplinarity by Jacob L. Mey.
A further thirty-eight chapters cover both traditional and newer areas of pragmatic research, divided into four sections: Methods and modalities, Established fields, Pragmatics across disciplines and Applications of pragmatic research in today’s world.
With accessible, refreshing descriptions and discussions, and with a look towards future directions, this Handbook is an essential resource for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in pragmatics within English language and linguistics and communication studies
