Pragmaticizing Understanding: Studies for Jef Verschueren

Overview

The ideas that mark modern-day pragmatics are old, but did not start to get more systematically developed until the 1960s and 1970s. Still, the very recognition of pragmatics as a self-standing academic discipline is a product of the 1980s, not least made possible by the establishment of the International Pragmatics Association. One scholar in particular has devoted his life both to IPrA and to the discipline.

Overview

The ideas that mark modern-day pragmatics are old, but did not start to get more systematically developed until the 1960s and 1970s. Still, the very recognition of pragmatics as a self-standing academic discipline is a product of the 1980s, not least made possible by the establishment of the International Pragmatics Association. One scholar in particular has devoted his life both to IPrA and to the discipline.
This volume pays homage to Jef Verschueren on the occasion of his 60th birthday. It celebrates him for his long-standing dedication as Secretary General of IPrA and for his scholarly contributions to the field. We owe to Jef Verschueren the insight that the processes through which language users (do or do not) achieve understanding among each other in communication can only be fully comprehended if approached from a pragmatic perspective, i.e. if understanding is pragmaticized.
The chapters in this book are written by scholars who, like Jef Verschueren, have played a key role in the genesis and development of the field, and who still actively contribute to its advancement today. Each author looks back, evaluates the present, and takes on new challenges.

Editorial Reviews

Anita Fetzer
Pragmaticizing Understanding is a fine piece of work [...]. The individual chapters and the volume as a whole present illuminating insights into the pragmatics of understanding — from both theoretical and language-use based perspectives. [...] Pragmaticizing Understanding is an excellent piece of work which not only practices what it preaches but also preaches what it practices.
Janet Holmes
The researchers and scholars who must be regarded as its primary audience will certainly enjoy this celebration of a field that has come of age in the 60 years of Jef Verschueren’s lifetime.
