This collection of papers embodies the dynamism and diversity of the field
of pragmatics. Its authors represent ten different countries and exemplify
research across all aspects of pragmatics, along with the interrelations
between pragmatics proper and such neighboring disciplines as cognitive
psychology, philosophy of language, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, and
communication. Recent theoretical and empirical advances in these fields
have motivated scholars to reexamine and revise some of the central tenets
of pragmatics, and it is this reexamination which lies at the heart of the
papers in this volume.
