Series Title: Studies in Pragmatics
Description:

This is a collection of invited papers that honours Professor Jacob Mey on
the occasion of his eightieth birthday. Professor Mey is, and has for a
long time been, at once one of the most respected, enterprising,
industrious, scholarly and, now, avuncular members of the numerous
linguistics communities in which he has worked. He has made, over a
distinguished working life, significant contributions to all of the
sub-disciplines of linguistics, from phonetics, through phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics and especially pragmatics. He has sought to
make connections between these sub-disciplines and broader areas of
thought. These connections have resulted in ground breaking advances in,
for example, Japanese sociolinguistics, pragmatics and artificial
intelligence, Marxist linguistics, pragmatics and therapy, pragmatics and
machine-processed information, gender and language, literary pragmatics and
societal pragmatics. The collection ends with an in-depth discussion
between Professor Mey and one of the editors in which Professor Mey speaks
fully and frankly about his life in language and language in life.
