The Handbook of Pragmatics is a collection of newly commissioned
articles that outline the central themes and challenges for current
research in the field of linguistic pragmatics. The 32 articles,
written by leading scholars, provide an authoritative and accessible
introduction to the field, including an overview of the foundations of
pragmatic theory and a detailed examination of the rich and varied
theoretical and empirical subdomains of pragmatics.

This Handbook is a valuable resource for both students and
professional researchers investigating the properties of meaning,
reference, and context in natural language. It will be of particular
interest to those exploring the interfaces of pragmatics with syntax,
semantics, lexicon, philosophy of language, information theory and
cognitive psychology. The extensive bibliography serves as a
self-contained research tool for those working in the general area of
pragmatics and allied fields in linguistics, philosophy and cognitive
