Message 1: Undergraduate textbook on Pragmatics?

Subject: Undergraduate textbook on Pragmatics?


I will be teaching a course for undergraduate linguistics majors next
semester and I am interested in finding out what books (textbooks?)
others have successfully used for undergraduate courses on
Pragmatics. This is the first time we are offering the course.

Among the texts that I am looking at are:
Jacob Mey's _Pragmatics_
Peter Grundy's _Doing Pragmatics_
Georgia Green's _Pragmatics and Natural Language Understanding_

I don't so much need a list of titles but your experience
(success or lack thereof) with particular texts.

Please respond directly to me and if others are interested, I
will post a summary.

I would very much appreciate any information regarding the influence
of Tagalog as a first language on the acquisition of English as the
second language in elementary school age children. The subject in
question is approximately 8 years of age. Real life examples would be
especially appreciated. Because this may not seem appropriate for
this list, I add that any and all observations with whatever
theoretical underpinnings are desired. If, by any chance, anyone has
any familiarity with speech pathology in Tagalog, or Tagalog and
English, in addition to a theoretical and practical familiarity with
these languages, your expertise will be appreciated greatly. Bill

Subject: QS: Information about the mathematics register

Dear linguists,

I am a graduate student looking for information related to the
language of math instruction, from both published and non-published
sources. I am interested in how the register is a barrier for learning
the content and ways to reduce that barrier. Any references, studies,
articles, ideas, experiences, etc. are useful.

Thank you,

A student of mine at Waseda University in Tokyo is doing her
graduation thesis on French-English cognates. She would like some
references, especially word lists of cognates and papers or books on
semantic changes which have led the cognates to have different
meanings.

If you have suggestions for her, please send e-mail to her at
d9230405mn.waseda.ac.jp

Thank you.
