  2. Now Available: Pragmatics, 3rd edition, by Joan Cutting

    Previously published as Pragmatics and Discourse, the new edition of this best-selling textbook has been revised and reorganised to focus solely on pragmatics. Pramatics covers the core areas of the subject (context, co-text, speech acts, conversation structure, the cooperative principle, politeness) and extends to more applied areas (corpora and communities, and culture and language learning). It draws on a wealth of texts, from political speeches by the British Prime Minister and newspaper articles from the Telegraph and the Times of India, to extracts from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Arthur Miller’s play Death of a Salesman and is accompanied by a companion website featuring extra material, activities, and advice for professors and students on how to use the book.
