Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The six case studies presented here fall into three distinct groups. They examine the application of speech act theory to Shakespearean drama, consider 18th-century Congressional debates from the perspective of fallacy theory in informal logic, and focus more narrowly on applications of linguistic pragmatics. Specific topics include types and functions of unpleasant verbal behavior in Shakespeare's and , promises and their contexts in , efforts to block the Bill of Rights in 1789, collocational coloring and electronic corpora, and contexts of phonologically null objects in object control structures in English and in Finnish.
