Abstract:

This book looks at mediaeval English drama using the theoretical frameworks
of historical sociopragmatics and dialogue analysis. It focuses on the
collection of cycle plays known as the N.Town Plays,
preserved in a manuscript from the fifteenth century. The book examines
various linguistic markers that are important for the expression of social
relations and pragmatic stance: pronouns and terms of address, modal
markers, performatives, and sequential structures such as question-answer,
imperative-compliance, etc. These elements are examined separately and then
brought together to arrive at a more integrated analysis of dramatic
dialogue and of the dynamics of interaction it portrays. A separate chapter
is devoted to tracing the same mechanisms on a different communication
level, i.e. in 'dialogue' with the audience, which is particularly relevant
to the instructional purposes of the plays. The book will be useful to
students and scholars of pragmatics, historical linguistics,
dialogue studies and drama studies.
