The topic of negotiation has turned out to be of crucial
interdisciplinary interest for our understanding of what we are doing
in language use. Are we exchanging meanings defined in advance and
presupposing equal understanding on the basis of a rule-governed
system, or are we negotiating meaning and understanding in the
framework of an open dialogic universe? Negotiation, on the one hand,
can be taken as the name of a specific dialogue type or action game of
bargaining. On the other hand, it represents a methodological concept
for describing and explaining dialogic interaction which replaces the
orthodox view of pattern transference. The papers collected in this
volume deal with both versions of the concept of negotiation. This
volume contains a selection of papers presented at the International
Conference on Pragmatics and Negotiation at Tel Aviv University and
the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in June, 1999. The dialogic aspect
was taken as the key concept to guide the present
selection. Contributions by: Marcelo Dascal; Bruce Fraser; Ruth Wodak
and Gilbert Weiss; Edda Weigand; Franz Hundsnurscher; Monika Dannerer;
Giuseppe Mininnik; Elda Weizman; Andreea Ghita; Mirka Maraldi and Anna
