This dictionary provides a full and authoritative guide to the meanings of the
terms, concepts, and theories employed in pragmatics, the study of language in

Pragmatics is a central subject in linguistics and philosophy and an
increasingly important topic in fields such as cognitive science, informatics,
artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and pathology. Its rapid development
has produced new theories, methods, approaches, and schools of thought. These
in turn have resulted in a vast vocabulary of new terms and in modified
meanings for existing terms. Such terms help advance research and facilitate
discussion, but they can also cause confusion and act as barriers to
understanding and communication. Yan Huang defines and explains them all, from
the most traditional to the most recent. Covering every branch of research and
all theoretical approaches and with the needs of students and researchers
firmly in mind he writes each entry in the simplest possible terms for the
subject in question, gives references to relevant seminal and recent work,
provides numerous cross-references to related entries, and shows how each term
and concept is applied and used in different contexts.

Written by one of the leading experts in the field, Professor Huang's
dictionary, the first of its kind ever published, will be a much valued
resource for students and researchers in every aspect of the field.
