Title: Speech Act Performance
Subtitle: Theoretical, empirical and methodological issues
Edited By: Alicia Martínez-Flor
Esther Usó-Juan
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26amp%3BLT%2026
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 26
Description:

Speech acts are an important and integral part of day-to-day life in all
languages. In language acquisition, the need to teach speech acts in a
target language has been demonstrated in studies conducted in the field of
interlanguage pragmatics which indicate that the performance of speech acts
may differ considerably from culture to culture, thus creating
communication difficulties in cross-cultural encounters. Considering these
concerns, the aim of this volume is two-fold: to deal with those
theoretical approaches that inform the process of learning speech acts in
particular contextual and cultural settings; and, secondly, to present a
variety of methodological proposals, grounded on research-based ideas, for
the teaching of the major speech acts in second/foreign language
classrooms. This volume is a valuable theoretical and practical resource
not only for researchers, teachers and students interested in speech act
learning/teaching but also for textbook writers wishing to have an informed
opinion on the pedagogical implications derived from research on speech act
performance.
