Title: Handbook of Pragmatics
Subtitle: 2007 Installment
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20HOP%2011
Description:

Note: This is a new installment of a previously published "Handbook of
Pragmatics."

In collaboration with Eline Versluys.

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. The IPrA Handbook now contains nearly 5,000
pages. 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. 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 has been expanded and revised annually since 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
http://www.benjamins.com/online with a free 90-day trial. The Handbook is
also available in combination with the Bibliography of Pragmatics
Online at a discounted rate.
