The Routledge Handbook of Spanish Pragmatics: Foundations and Interfaces (Paperback)
The Routledge Handbook of Spanish Pragmatics is the first volume to offer a comprehensive overview of advances in Spanish Pragmatics, addressing different types of interaction and the variables, both social and linguistic, that can affect them.
Written by a diverse set of experts in the field, the handbook unifies two major approaches to the study of pragmatics, the Anglo-American and European Continental traditions. Thirty-three chapters cover in detail both pragmatic foundations (e.g. speech act theory, implicature and relevance, deixis) and interfaces with other concepts, including:
- Variation; Culture and interculture
- (Im)politeness; humor
- Learning contexts and teaching
This is an ideal reference for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, and researchers of Spanish language and linguistics.
