Title: The Routledge Pragmatics Encyclopedia
Edited By: Louise Cummings
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415430968
Description:

Pragmatics has grown considerably in its relatively short history, from its
original disciplinary influences in philosophy and linguistics, into a
multidisciplinary field that encompasses a range of theoretical and
empirical concerns. The Routledge Pragmatics Encyclopedia captures the
diversity of these intellectual interests in a comprehensive, single-volume
edition.

The Routledge Pragmatics Encyclopedia covers concepts and theories that
have traditionally been associated with pragmatics, but also recent areas
of development within the field, scholars who have had a significant
influence on pragmatics, interdisciplinary exchanges between pragmatics and
other areas of enquiry and all major research trends. Extensive
cross-references between entries, along with suggestions for further
reading at the end of entries, ensure that the interested reader can pursue
additional study of chosen topics.

With over 200 entries, written by leading academics from around the world,
The Routledge Pragmatics Encyclopedia captures the rich complexity of
pragmatics in an accessible manner. This text will be relevant to students
of pragmatics as well as to established scholars in the field.
