New Book Series: Call for Manuscripts
Empirical Foundations of Theoretical Pragmatics (EFTP)
Edited by Marina Terkourafi, University of Illinois and Philippe De

Empirical Foundations of Theoretical Pragmatics (EFTP) is a new
international peer-reviewed forum for high-quality work in pragmatics. It
is devoted to research that draws on data from a wide array of languages,
socially varied populations and diverse situations to address pertinent
issues in theories of language interpretation, and to explore the
interaction between pragmatics and neighboring fields.

The rationale behind the series is straightforward: just as descriptive
work in pragmatics needs to be framed within rigorous theories, attested
data needs to be put at the heart of theorizing. Recent developments in the
language sciences mean this dual goal can now be more easily met. Many
pragmaticians have adopted a cognitively-oriented research agenda. Corpora
are multiplying, allowing computationally and statistically informed
analyses. Experimental and audiovisual techniques have improved
dramatically. Researchers are in a position to strike the right balance
between theoretical engagement and solid empirical grounding. EFTP offers a
natural venue for their work.

The new series will feature both monographs and collective volumes.

EFTP is addressed to advanced students and researchers in linguistics,
psychology, and human communication research, as well as to philosophers of
language interested in practical and psychological aspects of language use.
