Title: Contrastive Pragmatics
Edited By: Karin Aijmer
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/bct.30
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 30
Description:

We have recently seen a broadening of pragmatics to new areas and to the
study of more than one language. This is illustrated by the present volume
on Contrastive Pragmatics which brings together a number of articles
originally presented at the 10th International Pragmatics Conference in
Göteborg in 2007. The contributions deal with pragmatic phenomena such as
speech acts, discourse markers and modality in different language pairs
using theoretical approaches such as politeness theory, Conversation
Analysis, Appraisal Theory, grammaticalization and cultural textology. Also
discourse practices and genres may differ across cultures as illustrated by
the study of TV news shows in different countries. Contrastive pragmatics
also includes the comparative study of pragmatic phenomena from a foreign
language perspective, a new area with implications for language teaching
and intercultural communication. The contributions to this volume were
originally published in "Languages in Contrast" 9:1 (2009).
