Title: Key Terms in Pragmatics
Written By: Nicholas Allot
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=132337&SearchType=Basic
Series Title: Key Terms
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Pragmatics is a core discipline within linguistics, but is without an
introduction organised by key terms - until now. Key Terms In Pragmatics
succeeds in tackling this problem by giving students clear, explanatory
definitions of over 300 key terms in the field. There are short
intellectual biographies of key thinkers, and a list of key works for
further reading.

This book is essential reading for students on introductory and
intermediate courses on linguistics and language and communication,
especially those studying pragmatics and logic and meaning. It is also
useful to more advanced students of pragmatics who are looking for clear
definitions and for guidance on topics outside of their specialist area.

"Key Terms in Pragmatics provides a brilliant, sophisticated and highly
readable overview of the current state of the art in pragmatics. Highlights
include a wide-ranging, accurate and fair-minded introduction to the main
current approaches to pragmatics, illuminating (and entertaining)
intellectual biographies of key thinkers in the field, and concise
characterisations and illustrations of every term in pragmatics that you
might ever have wondered about. Essential reading for students and
researchers in pragmatics, linguistics, philosophy of language and
psychology of communication."
