Title: Mitigation
Edited By: Claudia Caffi
URL: http://books.elsevier.com
Series Title: Studies in Pragmatics
Description:

This forth volume in the Studies in Pragmatics (SiP) series is a fittingly
solid, well-illustrated and theoretical account of Mitigation (as form of
Politeness). The main goal of this book is to present a new integrated
pragmatic approach to communication. The approach has been called
´pragmatics of identity’. It's major feature is that it aims at integrating
pragmatic views (research on politeness, face-work, etc.) with insights from
different research fields into an extended framework where psychological
aspects of communication in context also can be taken into account.


The Studies in Pragmatics series is dedicated to publishing innovative,
authoritative monographs and edited collections from all micro-, macro- and
metapragmatic linguistic perspectives. Rooted in the interdisciplinary spirit of
the Journal of Pragmatics, it welcomes not only book proposals from
linguistics proper but also pragmatically-oriented proposals from neighboring
disciplines such as interactional sociology, language philosophy,
communication science, social psychology, cognitive science, and
information science. The goal of the series is to provide a widely read and
respected international forum for high quality theoretical, analytical, and
applied pragmatic studies of all types. By publishing leading edge work on
natural language practice, it seeks to extend our growing knowledge of the
forms, functions, and foundations of human interaction.
