Title: Pragmatics of Society
Edited By: Gisle Anderson

Series Title: Handbooks of Pragmatics [HOPS] 5
Description:

"Pragmatics of Society" takes a socio-cultural perspective on pragmatics and
gives a broad view of how social and cultural factors influence language use.
The volume covers a wide range of topics within the field of sociopragmatics.
This subfield of pragmatics encompasses sociolinguistic studies that focus on
how pragmatic and discourse features vary according to macro-sociological
variables such as age, gender, class and region (variational pragmatics), and
discourse/conversation analytical studies investigating variation according to
the activity engaged in by the participants and the identities displayed as
relevant in interaction. The volume also covers studies in linguistic pragmatics
with a more general socio-cultural focus, including global and intercultural
communication, politeness, critical discourse analysis and linguistic
anthropology. Each article presents the state-of-the-art of the topic at hand, as
well as new research.
