Abstract:

Interlanguage Pragmatics (ILP) is a field of growing interest. Focussing on
the speech act of requesting, the volume provides information about
opportunities for pragmatic learning and how pragmatics can be integrated
into instructional foreign language learning contexts. In addition, the
research reported here provides methodological insights for those
interested in investigating ILP from a second language acquisition
perspective. The reader will also encounter some research issues worth
examining in relation to pragmatic language learning. Topics include the
use of assessment instruments in measuring learners' perception and
production of different pragmatic issues, the long-term effects of
instruction, and the effectiveness of different teaching approaches.
