Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Cyberpragmatics
Subtitle: Internet-mediated communication in context
Written By: Francisco Yus
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/pbns.213
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 213
Description:

"Cyberpragmatics" is an analysis of Internet-mediated communication
from the perspective of cognitive pragmatics. It addresses a whole range of
interactions that can be found on the Net: the web page, chat rooms, instant
messaging, social networking sites, 3D virtual worlds, blogs, videoconference,
e-mail, Twitter, etc. Of special interest is the role of intentions and the quality of
interpretations when these Internet-mediated interactions take place, which is
often affected by the textual properties of the medium. The book also analyses
the pragmatic implications of transferring offline discourses (e.g. printed paper,
advertisements) to the screen-framed space of the Net. And although the main
framework is cognitive pragmatics, the book also draws from other theories and
models in order to build up a better picture of what really happens when people
communicate on the Net. This book will interest analysts doing research on
computer-mediated communication, university students and researchers
undergoing post-graduate courses or writing a PhD thesis.
