Title: Historical Sociopragmatics
Edited By: Jonathan Culpeper
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/bct.31
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 31
Description:

Originally published as a special issue of Journal of Historical
Pragmatics
10:2 (2009), this is the first book to map out historical
sociopragmatics, a multidisciplinary field located within historical pragmatics,
but overlapping with socially-oriented fields, such as sociolinguistics and
critical discourse analysis. Historical sociopragmatics has a central focus on
historical language use in its situational contexts, and how those situational
contexts engender norms which speakers engage or exploit for pragmatic
purposes. The chapters represent a range of ways in which historical
sociopragmatics can be understood and investigated. The reader will find
English texts from the 15th century through to the 18th, a variety of genres
(including personal correspondence, trial proceedings and plays), and both
qualitative and (corpus-based) quantitative analyses. Importantly, attention is
given to how contexts can be (re)constructed from written records, a sine
qua
non of the field. It will appeal to advanced-level students and
scholars with interests in pragmatics, especially socially-oriented pragmatics,
and/or historical linguistics, especially the history of English.
