Title: Handbook of Pragmatics
Edited By: Jan Blommaert
Jan-Ola Östman
Chris Bulcaen
Jef Verschueren
Description:

The Handbook of Pragmatics aims to provide easy access for scholars with
widely divergent backgrounds, but with convergent interests in the use and
functioning of language to the different topics, traditions and methods
which together make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as the
cognitive, social and cultural study of language and communication. The
Handbook of Pragmatics will be an annually updated publication. The main
body of the Handbook will be produced in loose-leaf format in a handsome
3-ring binder and is preceded by a bound Manual which contains a
descriptive catalogue of all the major traditions and methods related to
Pragmatics. The Manual was written by over 100 contributors. Within the
subsequent five years, the loose-leaf Handbook will provide descriptions of
all central topics and concepts in Pragmatics. After this phase, the
Handbook will continue to be expanded and updated annually. The project is
thus a state-of-the-art source book for researchers.The Handbook of
Pragmatics is one of the major tools of the International Pragmatics
Association to achieve its goals: of disseminating knowledge about
pragmatic aspects of language; of stimulating various fields of application
by making this knowledge accessible and revealing different points of view
and various methodologies; of finding, in the process, a significant degree
of coherence.
