December’s Book of the Month: Pragmatics II

From Routledge’s Major Works Critical Concepts in Linguistics Series comes December’s Book of the Month: Pragmatics II.

Published in November, Pragmatics II is a follow up to collection editor Asa Kasher’s critically well-received title Pragmatics. The six-volume title, published in 1998, was described at the time as an ‘essential background reading for students of pragmatics and new researchers in the pragmatics of language’ (The Linguist List).

Pragmatics has experienced dramatic growth since its first flourishing early in the twentieth century. Pragmatics (1998) was the first comprehensive collection of the field’s canonical and cutting-edge research. Pragmatics II extends this research. This new four-volume collection takes full account of the many important developments that have taken place since the publication of the first collection, including in depth coverage of research areas without the scope of the first collection.

With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Pragmatics II is an indispensable work of reference for students and researchers working within this continually developing field. It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a rich and vital research resource.
