Abstract:

This collection of papers embodies the dynamism and diversity of the fieldof pragmatics. Its authors represent ten different countries and exemplifyresearch across all aspects of pragmatics, along with the interrelationsbetween pragmatics proper and such neighboring disciplines as cognitivepsychology, philosophy of language, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, andcommunication. Recent theoretical and empirical advances in these fieldshave motivated scholars to reexamine and revise some of the central tenetsof pragmatics, and it is this reexamination which lies at the heart of thepapers in this volume.
