Synopsis

This is the first study of pragmatics with an introduction organized by key terms, including short intellectual biographies of key thinkers, and a list of key works for further reading. Pragmatics is a core discipline within linguistics, but is without an introduction organized by key terms - until now. "Key Terms In Pragmatics" succeeds in tackling this problem by giving students clear, explanatory definitions of over 300 key terms in the field. There are short intellectual biographies of key thinkers, and a list of key works for further reading. This book is essential reading for students on introductory and intermediate courses on linguistics and language and communication, especially those studying pragmatics and logic and meaning. It is also useful to more advanced students of pragmatics who are looking for clear definitions and for guidance on topics outside of their specialist area. "The Key Terms" series offers undergraduate students clear, concise and accessible introductions to core topics. Each book includes a comprehensive overview of the key terms, concepts, thinkers and texts in the area covered and ends with a guide to further resources.
