Title: Intercultural Pragmatics 


Editor-in-Chief: Istvan Kecskes

The journal aims to address a specific need. There is a rapidly
growing number of theoreticians and practitioners who are interested
in the development and use of pragmatic knowledge and skills in the
context of second language acquisition, bi- and multilingual
development and intercultural communication. The journal caters to
their needs by giving a forum for researchers who look for new
techniques, tools and methods to investigate human languages and
communication for better understanding of the role of pragmatic
competence in language development and cross-cultural interaction. The
first issue will be published in August 2004.

Istvan Kecskes is Professor of Linguistics and Education at the SUNY
at Albany.
