Title: Pragmatics and Discourse
Subtitle: A Resource Book for Students
Written By: Joan Cutting
Series Title: Routledge English Language Introductions
Description:

Traditionally distinct areas of study, the boundaries between pragmatics and discourse have become increasingly blurred; this volume addresses the need for an introduction that explores the similarities between the two terms.
Pragmatics and Discourse covers the core areas of the subject: context, co-text, speech acts, conversation, cooperative principle and politeness. It draws on a wealth of real, interesting texts, including the BBC miniseries
Pride and Prejudice, Who Wants to be a
Millionaire, The Full Monty and a Delia Smith recipe. It also provides classic readings from the key names in the discipline, from Sperber and Wilson to Hoey and
Wodak.
