Book Information

   

Title: Understanding Pragmatics
Written By: Jef Verschueren
Description:

This is the most comprehensive and current introduction to pragmatics.
Presupposing no background in pragmatics, the author sketches out the
theoretical basis of the subject and systematically develops the major
theoretical perspectives, to provide a full description of pragmatics as a
coherent field of inquiry. The text explores methodological issues, guiding
the reader into the existing spectrum of pragmatics-related work. Focusing
on pragmatics in its broadest sense, the book covers the whole range of
social, cultural and cognitive aspects of pragmatics.
