In Pragmatics, the study of meaning derived from context, Jean Stilwell Peccei offers a practical introduction to this core area of linguistics. Pragmatics:

  • encourages the reader to look at different levels of meaning within sentences
  • provides a basic understanding of key pragmatic concepts
  • introduces two highly influential approaches to pragmatics: the Co-Operative Principle and Speech Act Theory
  • encourages the reader to apply basic analytical tools to real data, eg. advertising language and children's conversations
  • provides a range of activities, discussion questions, an answer key and further reading.
