Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Pragmatics is a core discipline within linguistics, but is without anintroduction organised by key terms - until now. Key Terms In Pragmaticssucceeds in tackling this problem by giving students clear, explanatorydefinitions of over 300 key terms in the field. There are shortintellectual biographies of key thinkers, and a list of key works forfurther reading.

This book is essential reading for students on introductory andintermediate courses on linguistics and language and communication,especially those studying pragmatics and logic and meaning. It is alsouseful to more advanced students of pragmatics who are looking for cleardefinitions and for guidance on topics outside of their specialist area.

"Key Terms in Pragmatics provides a brilliant, sophisticated and highlyreadable overview of the current state of the art in pragmatics. Highlightsinclude a wide-ranging, accurate and fair-minded introduction to the maincurrent approaches to pragmatics, illuminating (and entertaining)intellectual biographies of key thinkers in the field, and concisecharacterisations and illustrations of every term in pragmatics that youmight ever have wondered about. Essential reading for students andresearchers in pragmatics, linguistics, philosophy of language andpsychology of communication."- Professor Deirdre Wilson, Division of Psychology and Language SciencesUniversity College London, UK
