Mouton Series in Pragmatics (MSP)
Focus on All Aspects of Pragmatics
Editor: Istvan Kecskes (State University of New York, Albany, USA)
MSP is a timely response to the growing demand for innovative and
authoritative monographs and edited volumes from all angles of pragmatics.
Recent theoretical work on the semantics/pragmatics interface, applications
of evolutionary biology to the study of language, and empirical work within
cognitive and developmental psychology and intercultural communication has
directed attention to issues that warrant reexamination, as well as
revision of some of the central tenets and claims of the field of
pragmatics. The series welcomes proposals that reflect this endeavor and
exploration within the discipline and neighboring fields such as linguistic
philosophy, communication, information science, sociolinguistics, second
language acquisition and cognitive science. MSP will provide a forum for
authors who represent different subfields of pragmatics including the
linguistic, cognitive, social, and intercultural paradigms, and have
important and intriguing ideas and research findings to share with scholars
who are interested in linguistics in general and pragmatics in particular.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
