Title: Doing Pragmatics, 3rd Edition
Written By: Peter Grundy

"Doing Pragmatics" achieved success through its unparalleled capacity to
render pragmatics truly accessible to students. Embracing the comprehensive
and engaging style which characterized the previous editions, the third
edition is fully revised and expanded. Grundy consolidates the strengths of
the original version, reinforcing its unique combination of theory and
practice with new theory, exercises and up-to-date, real data and examples.
New chapters include pragmatic strengthening and language evolution, and
intercultural communication. "Doing Pragmatics" is designed for pragmatics
courses both at an introductory and a more advanced level. It extends
beyond theory to promote an applied understanding of empirical data and to
provide students with the opportunity to "do" pragmatics themselves,
providing the ideal foundation for all those studying linguistics and ELT.
