Dear all,

I posted a query about interlanguage pragmatics (transfer) at the end
of October to Linguistlist. And I received several responses from the
following people. I here would like to say thank you to all of them
and I post a summary on the list. I am very sorry to have delayed the
summary.

I am working on interlanguage pragmatics, trying to find out the
correlation between L2 proficiency and pragmatic transfer, further
investigating the pragmatic teachability. And the following is the
suggestions:


1) Anna Wierzbicka's book on this topic: Trends in Linguistics:
Studies and Monographs 53: Cross-cultural Pragmatics, the Semantics of
Human Interaction. Berlin / New York: Mouton de Gruyter, 1991. 
2)check out the concept of Sprechbund in Central Europe; it refers to
interlinguistic metapragmatic continuities among peoples that formed
part of earlier states (Austro-Hungarian Empire). Apparently, despite
great differences in syntactic/lexical/semantic systems, they share a
lot of pragmatic overlap in real-time discourse; more than with people
who share their language but do not have the same history. 
3)"Intercultural Communication at Work" that just appeared; it may have
some information that you will find useful. 
4) Marc Picard recommended me 11 records from MLA database 
5) Debra M. Hardison suggested that I should resort to the journals of 
��Studies in Second Language Acquisition��, ��TESOL Quarterly��, 
��Applied Linguistics��,��Language Learning��, and books published by 
Gabriele Kasper and Katleen Bardovi-Harlig, and _ Interlanguage Pragmatics_ 
was published in 1993 by Oxford University Press, edited by G. Kasper and
S. Blum-Kulka. 
6) Check the website for more information,

7) Joel Walters suggested me to begin with the work of Shoshana Blum-Kulka,
Juliane House. Their book on Cross-cultural speech acts has a good
set of references. 
8) Nikazm referred me to the books on pragmatic transfer and cross-cultural 
pragmatic failure and Ellis, r. (1994) The study of second language acquisition. 
New York: Oxford University Press. 
9) Claudia Bubel referred me to the book: Eisenstein, Miriam
R. 1989. The dynamic interlanguage: Empirical studies in second
language variation. New York: Plenum. 
10) Kasper, Gabriele and Eric Kellerman (eds.) 1997 Communication strategies. 
London: Longman.
