Abstract:

The volume contributes to historical pragmatics an important chapter on whathas so far not been paid adequate attention to, i.e. historical metapragmatics.More particularly, the collected papers apply a meta-communicative approachto historical texts by focusing on lexis that either directly or metaphoricallyidentifies or characterizes entire forms of communication or single acts andact sequences or minor units. Within the context of their use, such lexicalexpressions, in fact, provide a key for disclosing historical forms ofcommunication; taken out of context, they build the meta-communicativelexicon.

The articles follow three principal distinctions in that they investigate themeta-communicative profile of genres, meta-communicative lexical sets andmeta-communicative ethics and ideologies. They cover a broad spectrum oftext types that span the entire history of the English language from Anglo-Saxon chronicles to computer-mediated communication.
