Abstract:

How do social situations influence language use, discourse and
conversation? This book is a monograph which presents a multidisciplinary
theory of context and the way context influences language use and
discourse. Unlike in earlier approaches, contexts are not defined as
objective social 'variables', such as gender or age. Rather, they are
constructs of the participants themselves, that is, 'subjective definitions
of the communicative situation' that are made explicit in the
sociocognitive notion of context models. These models dynamically control
all language use, make sure that discourses are appropriate in the
communicative situation and hence are the basis of pragmatics. In this
book, context models are studied especially from a (socio) linguistic and
cognitive perspective. In another book published by Cambridge University
Press, Society and Discourse, Teun A. van Dijk develops the social
psychological, sociological and anthropological dimensions of the theory of
context.
