Abstract:

The ideas that mark modern-day pragmatics are old, but did not start to getmore systematically developed until the 1960s and 1970s. Still, the veryrecognition of pragmatics as a self-standing academic discipline is a productof the 1980s, not least made possible by the establishment of theInternational Pragmatics Association. One scholar in particular has devotedhis life both to IPrA and to the discipline.

This volume pays homage to Jef Verschueren on the occasion of his 60thbirthday. It celebrates him for his long-standing dedication as SecretaryGeneral of IPrA and for his scholarly contributions to the field. We owe to JefVerschueren the insight that the processes through which language users (door do not) achieve understanding among each other in communication canonly be fully comprehended if approached from a pragmatic perspective, i.e.if understanding is pragmaticized.

The chapters in this book are written by scholars who, like Jef Verschueren,have played a key role in the genesis and development of the field, and whostill actively contribute to its advancement today. Each author looks back,evaluates the present, and takes on new challenges.
