Teaching and Learning Pragmatics in TESL
Guest Editor: Lynda Yates, PhD
Pragmatics is fast becoming recognized as an essential part of the language curriculum, and research into interlanguage and intercultural pragmatics has begun to provide important indicators of which aspects can be tackled in the classroom and the kinds of teaching approaches that can be most effective. Studies have also highlighted the importance of the cultural values underlying communication so that we understand why people use language in the way that they do. For learners to benefit, however, it is important that these insights are translated into practice. In this volume we aim to bring together papers that address this nexus between research and practice in the teaching and learning of pragmatic aspects of English.
This themed issue addresses this topic from various perspectives and we welcome contributions that draw on different contexts including but not limited to:
English as a second or foreign language
Study abroad contexts
Informal/ formal learning
We encourage a broad range of methodological approaches and theoretical frameworks, including qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods papers. Whatever the approach taken, it is essential that papers address in some way the implications for the learning or teaching of pragmatics for English as a second language in Canada, either in the application of findings or in the investigation of classroom or informal learning.
Manuscripts are to be transmitted as an email attachment directed to the Journal's email address (teslcanualberta.ca).
