Abstract:

This is a succinct introduction to the rapidly developing field of
pragmatics - the study of language from the point of view of its
users, of the choices they make, the constraints they encounter in
using language in social interaction, and the effects their use of
language has on other participants in communication.


The book reviews the work of Austin, Grice, Searle, Levinson and
others and examines the implicit meaning of everyday conversation, as
well as the social importance and determination of our individually
performed 'pragmatic acts'.

In this updated and thoroughly revised edition, Mey extends the
treatment of metapragmatic phenomena to what is often referred to, in
the US anthropological-pragmatic tradition, by the term 'indexing'. He
has also given full-fledged treatment to his theory of Pragmatic Acts
(including 'embodiment'), and has included new chapters on literary
pragmatics and pragmatics across cultures. The final chapter on social
aspects of pragmatics covers extensive recent research in what has
come to be named the 'critical' orientation of the discipline.
