Title: Handbook of Pragmatics

Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics
Description:

This encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies is a
continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone
interested in language use. It provides 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 is a unique reference work for researchers: the
main body of the Handbook is produced in loose-leaf format in 3-ring
binders and is accompanied by the bound Manual which contains all necessary
background information and user guidelines. The loose-leaf Handbook forms
the basis of the Handbook proper giving an overview of the subfields,
traditions, methodologies and concepts of Pragmatics.

The Handbook is used as a basis for the online version: the Handbook of
Pragmatics Online is being expanded and revised annually as of 2003. Future
versions will add further records and will include updates, rewritings and
extensive revisions of already existing records. The Handbook of Pragmatics
Online is available from www.benjamins.com/online as well as a free 90-day
trial. The Handbook is also available in combination with the Bibliography
of Pragmatics Online at a discounted rate.
