This encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies is a continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone interested in language use. The IPrA Handbook of Pragmatics provides easy access — for scholars with widely divergent backgrounds but with convergent interests in the use and functioning of language — to the different topics, traditions and methods which together make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as the cognitive, social and cultural study of language and communication, i.e. the science of language use.
The Handbook of Pragmatics is a unique reference work for researchers, which has been expanded and updated continuously with annual installments since 1995. It is also available online.

Table of Contents
“This Handbook is a fascinating compilation of very different articles,all of which come together around the central theme of pragmatics in itsbroadest interpretive sense. The contributions span mainstream and less commonlyinvestigated issues. Each contribution provides a detailed theoreticalcomponent, often accompanied by an overview of the historical development of theparticular line of thought in each area. A description of how research isconducted within each framework is also given. As well, most of thecontributions contain information about specific studies in their area to helpthe reader connect the theoretical and analytical information. The work isconsistently well done and it is clear that the editors have done a remarkablejob in bringing cohesion to very disparate works.”
