Title: Sprache und sprachliches Handeln (Language and Linguistic Action: Writings on Linguistics)
Subtitle: Band 1: Pragmatik und Sprachtheorie; Band 2: Prozeduren des sprachlichen Handelns; Band 3: Diskurs – Narration – Text – Schrift
Written By: Konrad Ehlich
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110193183-1
Description:

The three collected volumes of this study of language and linguistic action
present the first compendium of the foundations of a functional-pragmatic
theory of language, and using exemplars of linguistic analysis give an
insight into the approaches and methods which are possible working on the
basis of the theory. Volume 1 takes critical issue with the main lines of
the construction of linguistic theory to develop the profile of a
functional-pragmatic approach, Volume 2 examines the use of linguistic
procedures in language action, and Volume 3 concentrates on the analysis of
discourses in various action fields such as education, business or religion.
