Title: Discursive Pragmatics
Edited By: Jan Zienkowski
Jan-Ola Östman
Jef Verschueren
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/hoph.8
Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights 8
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 the
other volumes select specific philosophical, cognitive, grammatical,
social, cultural, variational, or interactional angles, this 8th
volume focuses on theories and phenomena at the level of discourse, but
leaving aside conversational interaction. It provides the reader with
pragmatics-oriented information on discourse analysis, critical discourse
analysis and critical linguistics, as well as text linguistics and
appraisal theory, while introducing other specific approaches to discourse
through concepts such as polyphony, intertextuality, genre, and
énonciation. Furthermore, topics such as public discourse,
narrative, figures of speech, cohesion and coherence, pragmatic markers,
manipulation, and humor, are all dealt with in separate chapters. The
binding idea, explained in the introduction, is that ´discursive
pragmatics´ may serve as a platform for a diversity of perspectives on
discourse, as they have emerged not only in the language sciences but also
in the humanities and social sciences in general.
