John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new series of paperback books called the "Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights."
The ten volumes of this series, edited by Jef Verschueren (University of Antwerp) and Jan-Ola Östman (University of Helsinki), focus on the most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, thus dividing its wide interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable way.
Each volume starts with an up-to-date overview of its field of interest and brings together some 1220 entries on its most pertinent aspects.
Since 1995, "the Handbook of Pragmatics" (HoP) and the HoP Online (in conjunction with the Bibliography of Pragmatics Online) have provided continuously updated, state-of-the-art information for students and researchers interested in the science of language in use. Their value as a basic reference tool is now enhanced with the publication of a topically organized series of paperbacks presenting HoP Highlights.
The books will be truly handy reference for students as well as researchers and useful as textbooks.
