    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:

    • Discourse

    • Variation; Culture and interculture

    • (Im)politeness; humor

    • Learning contexts and teaching

    • Technology

     

    This is an ideal reference for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, and researchers of Spanish language and linguistics.

    "Este trabajo de recopilación puede resultar muy útil para profesores y estudiantes universitarios que quieran ponerse al día de las recientes publicaciones en este campo o deseen estar al tanto de las nuevas metodologías y aquellos aspectos pragmáticos que quedan todavía por explorar en profundidad, como por ejemplo la pragmática de los hablantes de herencia, las implicaturas convencionales y conversacionales en español, la deixis o la interfaz entre pragmática y prosodia. Pero el volumen no solo ofrece una puesta al día a los ya iniciados en la pragmática, sino también a aquellos que busquen entender el objeto de estudio de un campo de la lingüística tan heterogéneo y amplio como es la pragmática."
