Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics 15
Description:

This encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies is a
continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone
interested in language use. The IPrA Handbook now contains nearly 5,000
pages. It provides easy access - for scholars with widely divergent
backgrounds but with convergent interests in the use and functioning of
language - to the different topics, traditions and methods which together
make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as “the cognitive, social
and cultural study of language and communication”.

The Handbook of Pragmatics is a unique reference work for researchers: the
main body of the Handbook is produced in loose-leaf format in 3-ring binders
and is accompanied by the bound Manual. The loose-leaf Handbook forms
the basis of the Handbook proper giving an overview of the subfields,
traditions, methodologies and concepts of Pragmatics.

The Handbook is used as a basis for the online version: the "Handbook of
Pragmatics Online" has been expanded and revised annually since 2003.
Future versions will add further records and will include updates, rewritings
and extensive revisions of already existing records. "The Handbook of
Pragmatics Online" is available from: www.benjamins.com/online with a free
90-day trial. The Handbook is also available in combination with the
"Bibliography of Pragmatics Online" at a discounted rate.

Special Offer: 30% discount for a complete set order (Manual + Installments
