Comment: Series Editor: Peter Stockwell


Traditionally distinct areas of study, the boundaries between
pragmatics and discourse have become increasingly blurred; this volume
addresses the need for an introduction that explores the similarities
between the two terms. Pragmatics and Discourse covers the core areas
of the subject: context, co-text, speech acts, conversation,
cooperative principle and politeness. It draws on a wealth of real,
interesting texts, including the BBC miniseries Pride and Prejudice,
Who Wants to be a Millionaire, The Full Monty and a Delia Smith
recipe. It also provides classic readings from the key names in the
discipline, from Sperber and Wilson to Hoey and Wodak.

Lingfield(s): Pragmatics
Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
