Review quote

"This book is an outstanding and long-needed overview of the field of second language pragmatics which offers a view of the changes to come in our globalized, technology-mediated, multilingual world." * Marta Gonzalez-Lloret, Professor and Chair of Spanish and LAIS, University of Hawaii at Manoa * "Written by two leading authorities, Second Language Pragmatics offers a comprehensive review of pragmatics as an object of second language learning, instruction and assessment. The book masterfully lays out the advances made over three decades, showing in welcome descriptive detail how the field has benefited from the diverse theoretical perspectives and empirical traditions that define it today. Taguchi and Roever extend a persuasive invitation to further research on second language pragmatics as a multilingual, multicultural, and multicontextual enterprise." * Gabriele Kasper, Professor of Second Language Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa *show more
