Title: Pragmatics
Subtitle: A Multidisciplinary Perspective
Written By: Louise Cummings
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748616824
Description:

This truly multidisciplinary text offers an original analysis of the
current state of linguistic pragmatics. Louise Cummings argues that no
study of pragmatics can reasonably neglect the historical and contemporary
influences on this discipline of neighbouring fields of enquiry,
particularly, philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence and language
pathology. By the same token these fields can begin to address their own
questions more productively by examining the insights of pragmatics. The
book's range of topics and depth of analysis will be of interest to
students and specialized readers in linguistics, communication studies,
speech and language therapy and cognitive science.

Coverage includes:
*pragmatic concepts and theories
*criticisms of Sperber and Wilson's relevance theory, Habermas's theory of
communicative competence and Kasher's views on the modularity of pragmatics
*pragmatic deficits in a range of child and adult language disorders
*a pragmatic analysis of argumentation in topical issues such as AIDS and BSE
*theories of meaning, inferences, pragmatics and AI.
