Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights 2
Description:

The ten volumes of Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights focus on
the most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, thus dividing its wide
interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable way. While other
volumes select philosophical, cognitive, grammatical, social, variational,
interactional, or discursive angles, this second volume reviews basic
topics and traditions that place language use in its cultural context. As
emphasized in the introduction, and as revealed in the choice of articles,
'culture' is by no means to be seen as standing in opposition to society
and cognition; on the contrary, the notion cannot be understood without
insight into the intricate interactions of social and cognitive structures
and processes. In addition to the topical articles, a number of
contributions to this volume are devoted to aspects of methodology. Others
highlight the role of eminent scholars who have made the study of cultural
dimensions of language use into what it is today.
