In recent years, there has been a rapidly growing body of research in the
field of cross-cultural pragmatics. The present collection of papers
focusses on the pragmatics of interlanguage English, a focus which is
justified by the growing importance of English as a global lingua franca as
well as by the fact that, in cross-cultural contexts, English is now
predominantly used by EFL or interlanguage users rather than by native
speakers. A lot of work in interlanguage pragmatics has traditionally been
speech act based; some of the papers in this volume follow this tradition
and examine the realisation of speech acts such as requests, apologies, and
complaints. Others investigate the use of interlanguage English (and, in a
few cases, French) in a variety of interactional contexts. Such contexts
include controlled elicitation procedures (e.g. interviews, role plays) as
well as spontaneous conversational interactions.

In short, the collection explores a variety of data collection methods as
well as examining a wide range of linguistic phenomena in the field of
interlanguage pragmatics (intonation, coherence devices, word order, speech
acts). Additionally, a number of methodologies are employed in the various
papers (relevance theory, conversation analysis, speech act theory).

This book thus offers a representative overview of the current 'state of
the art' in cross-cultural pragmatics in general, and the pragmatics of
interlanguage English in particular.
