Overview

Traditionally distinct areas of study, the boundaries between pragmatics and discourse have become increasingly blurred; this volume addresses the need for an introduction that explores the similarities between the two terms. Pragmatics and Discourse covers the core areas of the subject: context, co-text, speech acts, conversation, cooperative principle and politeness. It draws on a wealth of real, interesting texts, including the BBC miniseries Pride and Prejudice, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, The Full Monty and a Delia Smith recipe. It also provides classic readings from the key names in the discipline, from Sperber and Wilson to Hoey and Wodak.
