Abstract:

This dictionary provides a full and authoritative guide to the meanings of theterms, concepts, and theories employed in pragmatics, the study of language inuse.

Pragmatics is a central subject in linguistics and philosophy and anincreasingly important topic in fields such as cognitive science, informatics,artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and pathology. Its rapid developmenthas produced new theories, methods, approaches, and schools of thought. Thesein turn have resulted in a vast vocabulary of new terms and in modifiedmeanings for existing terms. Such terms help advance research and facilitatediscussion, but they can also cause confusion and act as barriers tounderstanding and communication. Yan Huang defines and explains them all, fromthe most traditional to the most recent. Covering every branch of research andall theoretical approaches and with the needs of students and researchersfirmly in mind he writes each entry in the simplest possible terms for thesubject in question, gives references to relevant seminal and recent work,provides numerous cross-references to related entries, and shows how each termand concept is applied and used in different contexts.

Written by one of the leading experts in the field, Professor Huang'sdictionary, the first of its kind ever published, will be a much valuedresource for students and researchers in every aspect of the field.
