Abstract:

In the humanities and social sciences, context is one of those terms
which is frequently used and frequently referred to, but hardly made
explicit.

This book proposes a model for describing the multifaceted
connectedness between language and language use, and between cognitive
context, linguistic context, social context and sociocultural context
and their underlying principles of well-formedness, grammaticality,
acceptability and appropriateness. Combining a range of theoretical
frameworks in linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse
analysis and philosophy of language, Fetzer goes beyond the unilateral
conception of speech and argues for a dialogue outlook on
natural-language communication based on dialogue principles and
dialogue categories. The most important ones are cooperation, joint
production, micro and macro communicative intentions, micro and macro
validity claims, co-suppositions, dialogue-common ground and
communicative genre.
