Description:

Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive textbooks,
providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced
study in the core areas of English language and applied linguistics.

Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections -
Introducing, Extension and Exploration - enabling them to explore and
develop major themes within the discipline.

Pragmatics:

-provides a broad view of pragmatics from a range of perspectives, gathering
readings from key names in the discipline, including Geoffrey Leech, Michael
McCarthy, Thomas Kohnen, Joan Manes and Nessa Wolfson

-covers a wide variety of topics, including speech acts, pragmatic markers,
implicature, research methods in pragmatics, facework and politeness, and
prosody

-examines the social and cultural contexts in which pragmatics occurs, such
as in cross-cultural pragmatics (silence, indirectness, forms of address,
cultural scripts) and pragmatics and power (the courtroom, police interaction,
political interviews and doctor-patient communication)

-uses a wide range of corpora to provide both illustrative examples and
exploratory tasks

-is supported by a companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/archer
featuring extra activities and additional data for analysis, guidance on
undertaking corpus analysis and research, including how to create your own
corpus with CMC, and suggestions for further reading.

Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, "Pragmatics"
provides an essential resource for students and researchers of applied
linguistics.
