Edited By: Martin Pütz
JoAnne Neff-van Aertselaer

Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 31
Description:

The present volume is a collection of papers on Contrastive Pragmatics,
involving research on interlanguage and cross-cultural perspectives with a
focus on second language acquisition contexts. The subdiscipline of
pragmatics is seen from a multilingual and multicultural perspective thus
contributing to an emerging field of study, i.e. intercultural pragmatics
which can be made fruitful to second language teaching/learning and
contrastive analysis. The book is an important contribution to general
linguistics, pragmatics, cross-cultural communication, second language
acquisition, as well as minority issues in multilingual settings.
