Abstract:

The use of vague language (for example expressions such as 'bags of time',
'doing stuff', 'sort of thing', 'and all that') is an aspect of
communicative competence of considerable social importance. Vague Language
Explored examines the function of vague language in context. It spans genre
analysis, critical discourse analysis, psycholinguistics and cross-cultural
sociolinguistics, in a variety of world cultures. It suggests also
applications in TEFL, asking questions such as 'What should learners be
taught to understand and use, and why?' and suggesting directions for
future research.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Discourse Analysis
                            Sociolinguistics
