Overview

Sixteen specialists from the U.S., Australia, Japan, and Hong Kong examine the acquisition of pragmatics—language use in social settings—in second and foreign language classrooms. A range of target languages and contexts in the U.S., Europe and Asia are addressed. Coverage includes theoretical and empirical background information; learning processes and the outcomes of second and foreign language teaching when instructional environments have not been set up to target particular aspects of the second language pragmatics; the effects of instruction in a variety of specific pragmatic features and skills, aiming at different target languages and student populations and using different instructional approaches; and the assessment of pragmatic abilities. For researchers, graduate students, and language teachers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

When I see the title, my eyes become sparkling. It is the very book I desire. For more than four years I have been reading books on pragmatics. However, up to now, no one is so appealing to me, because it is the first book I have seen talking on pragmatics in language teaching. I read through the contents listed out and almost every of them is attractive to me, I think. But it's a pity I couldn't put it in the cart. I'm not in America. I do hope I could read it as soon as possible or someone who has read it could help me with more information from the book. It is too important to me. Thanks before hand.
