Book Information

   

Title: Context and Contexts
Subtitle: Parts meet whole?
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/pbns.209
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 209
Description:

This book departs from the premise that context represents a complex
relational configuration which can no longer be conceived as an analytic
prime but rather requires a parts-whole perspective to capture its inherent
dynamism. The edited volume presents a collection of papers which examine
the connectedness between context, contextualization and entextualization.
They address the questions how meaning and speech acts are situated in
context, how both are influenced by context, how context influences speech
acts and meaning, how context is imported into the discourse, and how
context is entextualized in discourse. The papers cover institutional and
non-institutional contexts, the language of Greek laws, political
discourse, confrontational media discourse and task-oriented face-to-face
and back-to-back interactions. They reflect current moves in pragmatics and
discourse analysis to cross disciplinary and methodological boundaries by
integrating relevant premises and insights, in particular cognition,
adaptive action, negotiation of meaning, sequentiality, recipient design
and genre.
