This collection of papers fills a gap in current research on both
metapragmatics and pragmatics in that it combines data-based pragmatic
analysis with metapragmatic theory and focuses on the ways in which
metadiscourse is actually used. The 12 contributions investigate speech
acts and verbal (as well as non-verbal) expressions which highlight
(meta-)linguistic aspects of ongoing discourse and thus provoke a deviation
from the latter's original direction and purpose. All case studies discuss
ways and means which interactants employ to resolve diverging pragmatic
expectations in communication. The papers analyze authentic examples from
English and other languages (and cultures), including Thai, Chinese and
Japanese, and center around three principal domains of communication:
ordinary everyday interaction, interaction in educational contexts and in
specialized discourse. The introductory chapter locates the various
contributions within a systematically broader theoretical framework. The
wide scope of the collection, its empirical orientation and the
reader-friendly form of presentation should appeal to anyone interested in
pragmatics, whether scholar or student.
