Handbooks of Pragmatics [HOPS]

Ed. by Bublitz, Wolfram / Jucker, Andreas H. / Schneider, Klaus P.



    Aims and Scope

    This new landmark series of nine self-contained handbooks provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the entire field of pragmatics. It is based on a wide conception of pragmatics as the study of intentional human interaction in social and cultural contexts. The series reflects, appraises and structures a field that is exceptionally vast, unusually heterogeneous and still rapidly expanding. In-depth articles by leading experts from around the world discuss the foundations, major theories and most recent developments of pragmatics including philosophical, cognitive, sociocultural, contrastive and diachronic perspectives.

    - it will view pragmatics from both theoretical and applied perspectives;
    - it will be internationally oriented meeting the needs of the international pragmatic community;
    - it will be interdisciplinary including pragmatically relevant entries from adjacent fields such as philosophy, anthropology and sociology, neuroscience and psychology, semantics, grammar and text and discourse analysis;
    - it will provide reliable orientational overviews useful not only to researchers but also to students and teachers.
