Academic and Professional Discourse Genres

in Spanish

Edited by Giovanni Parodi

Pontifi cia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso

This volume off ers a description and a deep

examination of discourse genres across four

disciplines (Psychology, Social Work, Industrial

Chemistry, and Construction Engineering), in

academic and professional settings. The study

is based on one of the largest available corpus

on disciplinary written discourse in Spanish

(PUCV-2006 Corpus of Spanish containing almost

60 million words). Twelve chapters range

from the theoretical guiding principles of the

research in terms of genre conception, the

detailed description of each corpus (academic

and professional), computational analysis from

multi-dimensional perspectives, and the qualitative analysis of two specialized

genres (University Textbook and Disciplinary Text) in terms of their

rhetorical macro-moves and moves. Theoretically speaking, a multi-dimensional

perspective (social, linguistic and cognitive) is emphasized and

special attention to the cognitive nature of discourse genres is supported.

Action and Agency in Dialogue

Passion, incarnation and ventriloquism

François Cooren

Université de Montréal

With a foreword by Bruno Latour

What happens when people communicate or

dialogue with each other? This is the daunting

question that this book proposes to address

by starting from a controversial hypothesis:

What if human interactants were not the only

ones to be considered, paraphrasing Austin

(1962), as “doing things with words”? That is,

what if other “things” could also be granted the

status of agents in a dialogical situation? Action

and Agency in Dialogue: Passion, incarnation, and

ventriloquism proposes to explore this unique

hypothesis by mobilizing metaphorically the

notion of ventriloquism. According to this

ventriloqual perspective, interactions are never purely local, but dislocal,

that is, they constantly mobilize fi gures (collectives, principles, values,

emotions, etc.) that incarnate themselves in people’s discussions. This

highly original book, which develops the analytical, practical and ethical

dimensions of such a theoretical positioning, may be of interest to communication

scholars, linguists, sociologists, conversation analysts, management

and organizational scholars, as well as philosophers interested in

language, action and ethics.

Advice in Discourse

Edited by Holger Limberg and Miriam A. Locher

University of Oldenburg / University of Basel

This multi-faceted collection of research papers on Advice in Discourse

focuses on advisory practices in diff erent

contexts. Data is drawn from academic, educational

and training settings, health-related

practices, and computer-mediated communication.

The languages involved are Cantonese,

English, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish and

Russian. The chapters treat professional and institutional

practices, practices that contain peer

interaction within an institutional framework,

and non-institutional peer interaction, as well

as solicited and non-solicited advice in written

and spoken form. The work reported on clearly

demonstrates the complexity of the advisory

activity, which needs to be studied in its cultural framework and interactional

context. The richness and diversity of this practice is studied from

diff erent methodological angles, covering qualitative and quantitative as

well as theoretical and empirical analyses. The volume provides a comprehensive

introduction to the research fi eld, thought-provoking theoretical

discussions and extensive references for future research. It is essential for

linguists, advice-practitioners and for those who want to learn more about

the discourse of advice.

Aff ectivity in Interaction

Sound objects in English

Elisabeth Reber

University of Würzburg

How do participants display aff ectivity in social

interaction? Based on recordings of authentic

everyday conversations and radio phone-ins,

this study off ers a fi ne-grained analysis of how

recipients of aff ect-laden informings deploy

sound objects, i.e. interjections (oh, ooh and ah)

and paralinguistic signals (whistle and clicks), for

responsive displays of aff ectivity. Examining

the use of such sound objects across a number

of interactional activities including news telling,

troubles talk, complaining, assessments

and repair, the study provides evidence that

the sound pattern and sequential placement

of sound objects systematically contribute to their specifi c meaningmaking

in interaction, i.e. the management of sequence organisation and

interactional relevancies (e.g. affi liation). Presenting an in-depth analysis

of a little researched area of language use from an interactional linguistic

perspective, the book will be of theoretical and methodological interest

to an audience with a background in linguistics, sociology and conversational

studies.

Appositive Relative Clauses in English

Discourse functions and competing structures

Rudy Loock

University of Lille & STL laboratory, UMR 8163, CNRS

This book sheds new light on Appositive Relative

Clauses (ARCs), a structure that is generally

studied from a merely syntactic point of view,

in opposition to Determinative (or Restrictive)

Relative Clauses (DRCs). In this volume, ARCs

are examined from a discourse/pragmatic point

of view, independently of DRCs, in order to

provide a positive defi nition of the structure.

After a presentation of the morphosyntactic, semantic

and pragmatic characteristics of ARCs,

a taxonomy of their functions in discourse is established

for both written and spoken English

based on the results of a corpus-based investigation.

Constraints are then defi ned within an information-packaging

approach to syntactic structures to show why speakers choose ARCs over

other competing allostructures, i.e. syntactic structures that fulfi l similar

discourse functions (e.g. nominal appositives, independent clauses,

adverbials, noun premodifi ers, topicalization). The end result is a deeper

understanding of the richness of ARCs in their natural contexts of use.

Argumentation in Dispute Mediation

A reasonable way to handle confl ict

Sara Greco Morasso

USI - University of Lugano

The context of mediation immediately

highlights the importance of argumentation

as a means to reasonably handle confl ict.

Argumentation in in dispute mediation tackles this

topic providing both theoretical insights and

detailed empirical argumentative analysis. Its

goal is twofold: to explore mediation as a reallife

context of argumentation and to show how

an increased argumentative awareness could

improve confl ict resolution.

Particular emphasis is accorded to mapping

mediation through an interdisciplinary reasoned

review of existing accounts. The outline of a conceptual framework

of mediation constitutes a solid basis for the study of argumentation in

mediation. The argumentative analysis of a corpus of mediation cases,

based on the pragma-dialectical account and the Argumentum Model of

Topics, shows the mediator’s moves which actually help confl icting parties

discuss reasonably. The mediator’s topical potential plays a crucial role in

this relation at the levels of issue selection, evoking of cultural-contextual

premises and choice of argument schemes.

Author Representations in Literary Reading

Eefj e Claassen

Author Representations in Literary Reading

investigates

the role of the author in the mind of

the reader. It is the fi rst book-length empirical

study on generated author inferences by

readers of literature. It bridges the gap between

theories which hold that the author is irrelevant

and those that give him prominence. By

combining insights and methods from both

cognitive psychology and literary theory, this

book contributes to a better understanding

of how readers process literary texts and what

role their assumptions about an author play. A

series of experiments demonstrate that readers

generate author inferences during the process of reading, which they use

to create an image of the text’s author. The fi ndings suggest that interpretations

about the author play a pivotal role in the literary reading process.

This book is relevant to scholars and students in all areas of the cognitive

sciences, including literary studies and psychology.

Authoring the Dialogic Self

Gender, agency and language practices

Gergana Vitanova

University of Central Florida

This book off ers a truly interdisciplinary perspective

on key socio-cultural aspects of second

language learning. Building on Bakhtin’s

philosophy of language and the self, it examines

the complex intersections among gender,

culture, and agency in the everyday discursive

practices of immigrants. Bakhtin’s dialogic

framework still remains on the periphery of

second language acquisition research. The

book embraces not only Bakhtin’s well-known

notion of dialogue but also his core concepts of

responsibility and ethics in the analysis of immigrants’

narrative samples. The signifi cance of

narratives is underscored throughout the book, and a dialogic, discoursecentered

approach to narrative as a genre is suggested.

Authoring the Dialogical Self targets a range of disciplines. Scholars in

applied linguistics, narrative studies, cultural psychology, and communication

studies will fi nd the discussed concepts relevant. The rich data

samples and detailed analysis make the book appropriate for graduate

courses in TESOL, language and identity, or language and gender.

Beyond Narrative Coherence

Edited by Matti Hyvärinen, Lars-Christer Hydén,

Marja Saarenheimo and Maria Tamboukou

University of Tampere / Linköping University /

Central Union for the Welfare of the Aged / University of East London

Beyond Narrative Coherence reconsiders the way

we understand and work with narratives. Even

though narrators tend to strive for coherence,

they also add complexity, challenge canonical

scripts, and survey lives by telling highly

perplexing and contradictory stories. Many

narratives remain incomplete, ambiguous, and

contradictory. Obvious coherence cannot be

the sole moral standard, the only perspective

of reading, or the criterion for selecting and

discarding research material. Beyond Narrative

Coherence addresses the limits and aspects

of narrative (dis)cohering by off ering a rich

theoretical and historical background to the debate. Limits of narrative coherence

are discussed from the perspective of three fi elds of life that often

threaten the coherence of narrative: illness, arts, and traumatic political

experience. The authors of the book cover a wide range of disciplines such

as psychology, sociology, arts studies, political science and philosophy.

Body, Language and Meaning

in Confl ict Situations

A semiotic analysis of gesture-word mismatches

in Israeli-Jewish and Arab discourse

Orit Sônia Waisman

This original research applies semiotics to linguistic

and non-linguistic segments in a text in

search of potential correlations between them.

The resultant mapping is applied to cases of

gesture-word mismatches that are evident in

confl ict situations. The current study adopts

the word systems approach, a sign-based theory

that is naturally designed for the analysis of

linguistic signs, and extends it to non-linguistic

units, borrowing analytical tools from the

fi eld of dance movement therapy. The variety

of interdisciplinary metaphorical and literal

interpretations of the analyzed signs enriches

the theoretical framework and facilitates examination of the instances

of mismatches. Hence, this study makes a meaningful contribution to

the understanding of linguistic/non-linguistic mismatches in situations

of confl ict. Further, it makes more general claims: the semiotic system

underlying this study paves the way for further research of correlations

(or lack thereof) between a range of phenomena cutting across sociology,

sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and political science.

Causality and Connectives

From Grice to relevance

Valandis Bardzokas

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

The book explores fi nely-grained distinctions

in causal meaning, mostly from a relevancetheoretic

perspective. To increase the challenge

of this double task, i.e. a thorough as well as

satisfactory account of cause and a detailed

assessment of the theoretical model employed

to this end, the current study involves an investigation

carried out by way of contrasting the

prototypical causal exponents of Modern Greek

subordination, i.e. epei�i and �iati. In addition,

this objective is achieved in the methodological

framework of contrasting a range of contextual

applications of the two connectives against

their translated versions in English, realizable by means of because. Despite

fi rst impressions, a closer observation of the wide range of applications of

these markers in the discourse of coherence relations illustrates divergences

in their distribution, which, in turn, are taken to highlight diff ering

aspects of causal interpretation. The proposal for the relevance-theoretic

model emanates from a reaction to an array of problems undermining

traditional tenets of pragmatic theory originating with Grice’s stance, but

is also made in response to the common practice in pragmatic research

(since its origin) to pay low regard for the contribution of typical causal

markers to debates aiming at the determination of the distinction that has

been instrumental to issues of cognition and pragmatic interpretation, i.e.

propositional vs. non-propositional meaning.

Clause Linking and Clause Hierarchy

Syntax and pragmatics

Edited by Isabelle Bril

CNRS-LACITO

This collective volume explores clause-linkage

strategies in a cross-linguistic perspective

with greater emphasis on subordination. Part

I presents some theoretical reassessment of

syntactic terminologies and distinctive criteria

for subordination, as well as typological methods

based on sets of variables and statistics

allowing cross-linguistic comparability. Part

II deals with strategies relating to clausechaining,

conjunctive conjugations, converbial

constructions, masdars. Part III centers on the

interaction between the syntax, pragmatics,

and semantics of clause-linking and subordination,

in relation to informa tional structure, to referential hierarchy, and

correlative constructions. Part IV presents insights in the clause-linking

and subordinating functions of some T.A.M. markers, verbal infl ectional

morphology and conjugation systems, which may also interact with

informa tional hierarchy, via the backgrounding eff ects and lack of illocutionary

force of some aspect and mood forms. The volume is of particular

interest to linguists and typologists working on clause-linkage systems

and on the interface between syntax, pragmatics, and semantics.

Cohesive Profi ling

Meaning and interaction in personal weblogs

Christian R. Hoff mann

University of Augsburg

Cohesive Profi ling provides one of the fi rst linguistic

descriptions of blog discourse, focusing

on the cohesive relations which enable users

to construe blogs as compatible meaningful

wholes. With a corpus-based analysis of

cohesive relations in personal blogs, the study

surprisingly reveals that there is only limited

cohesive rapport between the textual contributions

of blog authors and readers. The book

retraces blogs’ technological, linguistic and

generic evolution and describes how today’s

blog genres are structured and composed. Additionally,

it is shown how cohesive interaction,

shared knowledge and technological expertise converge in blog readers

trying to keep track of blog topics, purposes and identities over time. The

book is of interest to researchers in discourse analysis, corpus linguistics

and pragmatics as well as to scholars working in the fi eld of computermediated

communication.

Communicational Criticism

Studies in literature as dialogue

Roger D. Sell

Åbo Akademi University

Further developing the line of argument

put forward in his Literature as Communication

(2000) and Mediating Criticism (2001), Roger D.

Sell now suggests that when so-called literary

texts stand the test of time and appeal to a

large and heterogeneous circle of admirers,

this is because they are genuinely dialogical in

spirit. Their writers, rather than telling other

people what to do or think or feel, invite them

to compare notes, and about topics which take

on diff erent nuances as seen from diff erent

points of view. So while such texts obviously

refl ect the taste and values of their widely

various provenances, they also channel a certain respect for the human

other to whom they are addressed. So much so, that they win a reciprocal

respect from members of their audience. In Sell’s new book, this ethical

interplay becomes the focus of a post-postmodern critique, which sees

literary dialogicality as a possible catalyst to new, non-hegemonic kinds

of globalization. The argument is illustrated with major reassessments of

Shakespeare, Pope, Wordsworth, Dickens, Churchill, Orwell, and Pinter,

and there are also studies of trauma literature for children, and of ethically

oriented criticism itself.

University of Wuppertal

This volume presents original comparative

and contrastive research into various aspects of

information structure (topic, focus, contrastivity,

givenness, anaphoricity) as well as into forms

and structures whose realisation depends on information-structural

factors (clefts, dislocations,

refl exives, null subjects, prosodic features, interrogatives) in a number of

diff erent languages (Catalan, English, French, Georgian, German, Hebrew,

Hungarian). Each contribution emphasises diff erences or commonalities

between the languages under investigation with respect to the realisation

of information structural categories or with respect to the information

structural implications of a given form or structure.

Constraints in Discourse 3

Edited by Anton Benz, Manfred Stede and Peter Kühnlein

The analysis of discourse is probably one of the most complex problems of

linguistics. It can be approached from many diff erent directions, involving

a large variety of diff erent methods. This volume unites psycholinguistic

studies, investigations of logical and computational models of discourse,

corpus studies, and linguistic case studies of language-specifi c devices.

This variety of approaches refl ects the complexity of discourse production

and understanding, and it also refl ects the necessity of understanding the

complex interplay of diverse parameters which infl uence these processes.

The growing importance of corpus-based and experimental approaches

to discourse analysis is duly refl ected in this volume. This collection of

articles grew out of the third installment of the Constraints in Discourse

conferences.

Context and Contexts

Parts meet whole?

Edited by Anita Fetzer and Etsuko Oishi

University of Würzburg / Fuji Women’s University

This book departs from the premise that

context represents a complex relational confi

guration which can no longer be conceived

as an analytic prime but rather requires a

parts-whole perspective to capture its inherent

dynamism. The edited volume presents

a collection of papers which examine the

connectedness between context, contextualization

and entextualization. They address the

questions how meaning and speech acts are

situated in context, how both are infl uenced

by context, how context infl uences speech acts

and meaning, how context is imported into the

discourse, and how context is entextualized in discourse. The papers cover

institutional and non-institutional contexts, the language of Greek laws,

political discourse, confrontational media discourse and task-oriented

face-to-face and back-to-back interactions. They refl ect current moves in

pragmatics and discourse analysis to cross disciplinary and methodological

boundaries by integrating relevant premises and insights, in particular

cognition, adaptive action, negotiation of meaning, sequentiality, recipient

design and genre.

Contrastive Pragmatics

Edited by Karin Aijmer

University of Gothenburg

We have recently seen a broadening of pragmatics

to new areas and to the study of more

than one language. This is illustrated by the

present volume on Contrastive Pragmatics

which brings together a number of articles

originally presented at the 10th International

Pragmatics Conference in Göteborg in 2007.

The contributions deal with pragmatic phenomena

such as speech acts, discourse markers

and modality in diff erent language pairs using

theoretical approaches such as politeness theory,

Conversation Analysis, Appraisal Theory,

grammaticalization and cultural textology.

Also discourse practices and genres may diff er across cultures as illustrated

by the study of TV news shows in diff erent countries. Contrastive pragmatics

also includes the comparative study of pragmatic phenomena from a

foreign language perspective, a new area with implications for language

teaching and intercultural communication. The contributions to this

volume were originally published in Languages in Contrast 9:1 (2009).

Critical Discourse Studies in Context

and Cognition

Edited by Christopher Hart

Northumbria University

Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) is an exciting

research enterprise in which scholars are

concerned with the discursive reproduction

of power and inequality. However, researchers

in CDS are increasingly recognising the need

to investigate the cognitive dimensions of discourse

and context if they want to fully account

for any connection between language, legitimisation

and social action. This book presents a

collection of papers in CDS concerned with various

ideological discourses. Analyses are fi rmly

rooted in linguistics and cognition constitutes

a major focus of attention. The chapters, which

are written by prominent researchers in CDS, come from a broad range of

theoretical perspectives spanning pragmatics, cognitive psychology and

cognitive linguistics. The book is essential reading for anyone working at

the cutting edge of CDS and especially for those wishing to explore the

central place that cognition must surely hold in the relationship between

discourse and society.

Cultural Conceptualisations and Language

Theoretical framework and applications

Farzad Sharifi an

Monash University

This book presents a multidisciplinary

theoretical model of cultural conceptualisations

and language. Viewing language as

fi rmly grounded in cultural cognition, the

model draws on analytical tools and theoretical

advancements in several disciplines, including

cognitive linguistics, cognitive anthropology,

anthropological linguistics, distributed

cognition, complexity science, and cognitive

psychology. The result is a framework that has

signifi cant implications for those disciplines

as well as for applied linguistics. Applications

of the model to intercultural communication,

cross-cultural pragmatics, English as an International Language/World

Englishes, and political discourse analysis are explored in detail.

Cyberpragmatics

Internet-mediated communication in context

Francisco Yus

University of Alicante

Cyberpragmatics is an analysis of Internetmediated

communication from the perspective

of cognitive pragmatics. It addresses a whole

range of interactions that can be found on the

Net: the web page, chat rooms, instant messaging,

social networking sites, 3D virtual worlds,

blogs, videoconference, e-mail, Twitter, etc. Of

special interest is the role of intentions and the

quality of interpretations when these Internetmediated

interactions take place, which is

often aff ected by the textual properties of the

medium. The book also analyses the pragmatic

implications of transferring offl ine discourses

(e.g. printed paper, advertisements) to the screen-framed space of the Net.

And although the main framework is cognitive pragmatics, the book also

draws from other theories and models in order to build up a better picture

of what really happens when people communicate on the Net. This book

will interest analysts doing research on computer-mediated communication,

university students and researchers undergoing post-graduate

courses or writing a PhD thesis.

Dialogue – The Mixed Game

Edda Weigand

University of Münster

The ‘Mixed Game Model’ represents a holistic

theory of dialogue which starts from human

beings’ competence-in-performance and describes

how language is integrated in a general

theory of human action and behaviour. Human

beings are able to adapt to changing conditions

and to pursue their interests by the integrated

use of various communicative means, mainly

verbal, perceptual and cognitive. The core

unit is the dialogic action game or ‘the mixed

game’ with human beings at the centre acting

and reacting in cultural surroundings. The key

to opening up the complex whole is human

beings’ nature. The Mixed Game Model demonstrates how the diff erent

disciplines of the natural and social sciences and the humanities are

mutually interconnected. After a detailed overview of the state of the art,

the fundamentals of the theory are laid down. They include a typology of

action games which ranges from minimal games to complex institutional

games. The description is illustrated by analyses of authentic games.

Dialogue in Spanish

Studies in functions and contexts

Edited by Dale April Koike and Lidia Rodríguez-Alfano

University of Texas at Austin / Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, México

Dialogue in Spanish

provides a strong theoretical

and empirical foundation for the study of dialogue.

This edited collection of twelve original

studies contributes to a broad comprehension

of dialogue in two general contexts: personal

interactions among friends and family; and

public speech, such as political debates, medical

interviews, court translations and service encounters.

The studies, written by authors from

Canada, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, the United

States and Venezuela, present an in-depth

look at issues and elements of dialogue such as

irony, narrativity, discourse markers, coherence,

confl ict and expectations. Background research on dialogue grounds

the articles in such areas as discourse analysis, pragmatics, philosophy, sociology,

anthropology and linguistics. The book will prove useful to those

who study conversational interaction, pragmatics, and discourse analysis

as applied to various functions and contexts, and it will be of particular

interest to researchers and students of linguistics, anthropology, sociology,

philosophy, communications and education.

Dialogue, Science and Academic Writing

Zohar Livnat

Bar-Ilan University

This book investigates the dialogic nature of research

articles from the perspective of discourse

analysis, based on theories of dialogicity. It

proposes a theoretical and applied framework

for the understanding and exploration of scientifi

c dialogicity.

Focusing on some dialogic components, among

them citations, concession, inclusive we and

interrogatives, a combined model of scientifi

c dialogicity is proposed, that refl ects the

place and role of various linguistic structures

against the background of various theoretical

approaches to dialogicity.

Taking this combined model as a basis, the analysis demonstrates how

scientifi c dialogicity is realized in an actual scientifi c dispute and how a

scientifi c project is constructed step by step by means of a dialogue with

its readers and discourse community. A number of diff erent patterns of

scientifi c dialogicity are off ered, characterized by the diff erent levels of

the polemic held with the research world and other specifi c researchers –

from the “classic”, moderate and polite dialogicity to a direct and personal

confrontation between scientists.

Discourse and Socio-political Transformations

in Contemporary China

Edited by Paul Chilton, Hailong Tian and Ruth Wodak

Lancaster University / Tianjin University of Commerce

China’s opening up to the West, its extraordinary

economic rise, and the subsequent internal

and global issues, are an object of huge interest

and concern. Discourse and Socio-political Trans-

formations in Contemporary China

focuses on one

aspect of the contemporary Chinese phenomenon,

one that is so obvious that it is generally

ignored in the mainstream academic departments

– that politics, society and transformation

are the product of myriad collective linguistic

interchanges, some stabilized, some competing,

some agonistic, some new and emerging.

As an outcome of dialogue between Chinese and Western scholars, the

present volume contains case studies that off er a survey of the discourse

aspect of Chinese society in social stratifi cation, government service, policy

consultancy, higher education, foreign policy, and TV. The conceptual

refl ections on discourse and critique in diff erent cultures off er new considerations

for discourse analysis, including critical discourse analysis, in the

context of Chinese society today.

This volume was originally published as a special issue of Journal of Language

and Politics 9:4 (2010).

Discourses in Interaction

Edited by Sanna-Kaisa Tanskanen, Marja-Liisa Helasvuo,

Marjut Johansson and Mia Raitaniemi

University of Helsinki / University of Turku

The fourteen contributions in this collection

come from diff erent approaches in pragmatics,

interactional linguistics, conversation analysis,

discourse analysis and dialogue analysis; the

name given to what is studied ranges from

spoken language and conversation to interaction,

dialogue, discourse and communication.

What the articles have in common is a similar

starting point: they are informed by a form of

linguistic understanding which has emerged

within what could be called the interactional

turn. The materials investigated come from

several diff erent languages, representing a

variety of interactions: private and public, written and spoken, historical

and present-day. While studies of such diverse materials naturally diff er in

their starting points, goals and aims, engaging them in a dialogue can help

reveal where old beliefs may be challenged and new understandings may

emerge. The interactional approaches to discourse presented in this volume

show that there are several discourses on interaction: interconnected,

parallel, but also varying and even divergent.

Early Modern English Medical Texts

Corpus description and studies

Edited by Irma Taavitsainen and Päivi Pahta

University of Helsinki / University of Tampere

The corpus Early Modern English Medical Texts

(EMEMT) is the second component of the

Corpus of Early English Medical Writing (CEEM), a

three-part series of historical corpora of medical

writing from 1375-1800. EMEMT contains

a two-million word representative sample of

the entire fi eld of English medical writings that

appeared in print between 1500 and 1700, and

provides continuity to Middle English Medical

Texts (MEMT), published on CD-ROM by John

Benjamins in 2005.

The EMEMT corpus includes c. 230 texts, ranging

from theoretical treatises rooted in academic traditions of medicine

to popularized and utilitarian texts verging on household literature. The

texts are grouped into six text categories that facilitate systematic research

into the history of medical writing in its disciplinary context: general

treatises and textbooks; treatises on specifi c topics; recipe collections and

materia medica ; regimen and health guides; surgical treatises; and samples

of the fi rst scientifi c journal, the Philosophical Transactions.

EMEMT is released on CD-Rom with EMEMT Presenter, purpose-designed

software by Raymond Hickey.

The corpus is published with a book, Early Modern English Medical Texts:

Editorials and the Power of Media

Interweaving of socio-cultural identities

Elisabeth Le

University of Alberta

Editorials defi ne at a given time how media

construct their socio-cultural environment

and where they position themselves in it. In

this sense, they are snapshots of media sociocultural

identities whose study is crucial for the

understanding of media actions and interactions

on the political stage. This book contributes

to the study of media roles in politics with

a methodological “discursive communication

identity framework” and its application to a

corpus of editorials. This allows for the defi nition

of editorials as a genre, and it reveals that,

thanks to a very adroit interweaving of their

socio-cultural identities, news media can play a much more active role

on the political stage than studies on framing and agenda setting have

hitherto shown. The place of media in political communication models

might therefore need to be reviewed. This book is intended for all those

interested in media and politics whatever their academic specializations.

Elements of Meaning in Gesture

Geneviève Calbris

Translated by Mary M. Copple

Summarizing her pioneering work on the

semiotic analysis of gestures in conversational

settings, Geneviève Calbris off ers a comprehensive

account of her unique perspective on

the relationship between gesture, speech, and

thought. She highlights the various functions

of gesture and especially shows how various

gestural signs can be created in the same gesture

by analogical links between physical and

semantic elements. Originating in our world

experience via mimetic and metonymic processes,

these analogical links are activated by

contexts of use and thus lead to a diverse range

of semantic constructions rather as, from the components of a Meccano

kit, many diff erent objects can be assembled. By (re)presenting perceptual

schemata that mediate between the concrete and the abstract, gesture

may frequently anticipate verbal formulation. Arguing for gesture as a

symbolic system in its own right that interfaces with thought and speech

production, Calbris’ book brings a challenging new perspective to gesture

studies and will be seminal for generations of gesture researchers.

Ethnic Styles of Speaking in European

Metropolitan Areas

Edited by Friederike Kern and Margret Selting

Bielefeld University / University of Potsdam

In recent years, ethnic ways of speaking by

young people with migrant background have

become an important research object in sociolinguistics;

work on these ways of speaking has

been prospering in many European countries.

This work is continued in the present volume,

with the aim of bringing together various

research designs which explore the phenomenon

from diff erent perspectives: correlational

methodology of sociolinguistic research,

conversation analytical and interactional

linguistic methodology, and an ethnographic

perspective on language use and the construction

of social identities and social relations. The aim of the volume is to

explore the scope of these diff erent methodologies and to provide a basis

for the discussion and evaluation of the theories of language variation

associated with them. All papers focus on the description of the linguistic

characteristics that constitute the non-standard structures of ethnic styles

of speaking, and look into their various functions in discourse.

European Parliaments under Scrutiny

Discourse strategies and interaction practices

Edited by Cornelia Ilie

Malmö University

In the European tradition, parliaments are

central political institutions that play a crucial

role in the development of democratic societies.

No other institution regularly off ers a public

arena for open deliberation and dissent, for

discussing opposite points of view and for

reaching compromise solutions between political

adversaries. However, in spite of the growing

visibility of modern parliaments, the study

of parliamentary language use, interaction

practices and discourse strategies has long been

under-researched. Based on extensive parliamentary

data, this book integrates a rich variety

of innovative analytical approaches that explore the far-reaching impacts

of parliamentary practices and linguistic strategies on current political

action and interaction. Individual chapters problematise and re-evaluate

the discourse-shaped identities and roles of Members of Parliament, the

structure and functions of parliamentary discourse genres, interpersonal

behaviour and intertextual meaning co-construction in post-Communist

parliaments. They off er broad cross-cultural perspectives on parliamentary

discursive psychology and argumentation. The book provides essential

reading for scholars and students of language and linguistics, rhetoric,

political and social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in language

and politics.

The Evaluability Hypothesis

The syntax, semantics, and pragmatics

of polarity item licensing

Johan Brandtler

Lund University

Although the fi eld of polarity is well researched,

this monograph off ers a new take on

polarity sensitivity that both challenges and

incorporates previous theories. Based primarily

on Swedish data, it presents new solutions to

long-standing problems, such as the noncomplementary

distribution of NPIs and PPIs

in yes/no-questions and conditionals, long distance

licensing by superordinate elements, and

the occurrence of polarity items in wh-questions.

It is argued that polarity sensitivity can

be understood in terms of evaluability. Lacking

any immediate predecessor in the literature,

evaluability refers to the possibility of accepting or rejecting an utterance

as true in a communicative exchange. Intriguingly, the evaluable status of

a clause is shown to have syntactic correlates in Swedish, mirrored in the

confi guration of the C-domain. This book is of interest to scholars studying

the interplay between syntax, semantics and pragmatics, particularly

those working on negation and polarity.

Experimental Pragmatics/Semantics

Edited by Jörg Meibauer and Markus Steinbach

Gutenberg University Mainz / Georg-August University Göttingen

In recent years, a lively debate ensued on

an old issue, namely the proper distinction

between semantics and pragmatics against the

background of the classical Gricean distinction

between ‘what is said’ and ‘what is implicated’.

From a linguist’s point of view, however, there

has always been a regrettable lack of empirical

data in this otherwise sophisticated debate. Recently,

a new strand of research emerged under

the name of experimental pragmatics, the attempt

to gain experimental data on pragmatic

and semantic issues by using psycholinguistic

and neurolinguistic methods. This volume

brings together work by scholars engaging in experimental research on

the semantics/pragmatics distinction. The contribution of experimental

pragmatics to pragmatic and semantic theory is discussed from a number

of diff erent angles, ranging from implicature and pragmatic enrichment

to pragmatic acquisition, pragmatic impairment, and pragmatic processing.

In addition, methodological issues are discussed. The contributions

will appeal to theoretical linguists, psycholinguists, neurolinguists, and

language philosophers.

Exploring Newspaper Language

Using the web to create and investigate a large corpus of

modern Norwegian

Edited by Gisle Andersen

Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen

This book describes new methodological and

technological approaches to corpus building

and presents recent research based on the

Norwegian Newspaper Corpus. This is a large

monitor corpus of contemporary Norwegian

language, compiled through daily harvesting

of web newspapers. The book gives an overview

of the corpus and its system architecture, and

presents tools used for tasks such as text harvesting,

annotation, topic classifi cation and extraction

and frequency profi ling of new words

and phrases. Among the innovative technologies

is Corpuscle, a corpus query engine and

management system which is fl exible enough to handle very large corpora

in an effi cient way. The individual research contributions based on the

corpus explore diff erent aspects of Norwegian, including the occurrence

of anglicisms, neologisms and terminology, and the use of metonymy and

metaphor in newspaper language. The book also describes an innovative

method of applying correspondence analysis and implicational analysis to

investigate interdependencies between morphosyntactic variants.

Expressing Opinions in French

and Australian English Discourse

A semantic and interactional analysis

experiences as non-native speakers in France

or Australia, this book combines subjective

personal testimonies with an objective linguistic

analysis of the expression of opinion in

discourse.

It off ers a new perspective on French and Australian

English interactional style by examining

the discourse markers I think, je pense, je

crois and je trouve. It is shown that the prosody,

intonation unit position, and the surrounding context of these markers

are all fundamental to their function and meaning in interaction. In addition,

this book off ers the fi rst detailed comparative semantic study of the

three comparative French expressions in interaction.

The book will appeal to all those interested in linguistics, French and

Australian English interactional style, cross-cultural communication, and

discourse analysis. Students and teachers of French will be interested in

the semantic analysis of the French expressions, the authentic interactional

data and the personal testimonies of the participants.

Key Notions for Pragmatics

Edited by Jef Verschueren and Jan-Ola Östman

University of Antwerp / University of Helsinki

This volume reviews basic notions that pervade the pragmatic

literature, such as deixis, implicitness, speech acts,

context, and the like. It situates the fi eld of pragmatics,

broadly defi ned as the cognitive, social, and cultural

science of language use, in relation to a general concept

of communication and the discipline of semiotics. It also

touches upon the non-verbal aspects of language use and

even ventures a comparison with non-human forms of

communication. The introductory chapter, moreover,

explains why a highly diversifi ed fi eld of scholarship

such as pragmatics can be regarded as a potentially

coherent enterprise.

Culture and Language Use

Edited by Gunter Senft, Jan-Ola Östman

and Jef Verschueren

Max-Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics /

University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume reviews basic topics and traditions that

place language use in its cultural context. As emphasized

in the introduction, and as revealed in the choice

of articles, ‘culture’ is by no means to be seen as standing

in opposition to society and cognition; on the contrary,

the notion cannot be understood without insight into

the intricate interactions of social and cognitive structures

and processes. In addition to the topical articles,

a number of contributions to this volume is devoted to

aspects of methodology. Others highlight the role of

eminent scholars who have made the study of cultural

dimensions of language use into what it is today.

Cognition and Pragmatics

Edited by Dominiek Sandra, Jan-Ola Östman

and Jef Verschueren

University of Antwerp / University of Helsinki /

University of Antwerp

This volume focuses on the interface between language and

cognition. Language use is impossible without the mobilization

of a large variety of cognitive processes, each serving

a diff erent purpose. During the last half century cognitive

approaches to language have been particularly successful,

and the broad spectrum of contributions to this volume testify

to this success. As cognitive approaches to language are

by defi nition a subset of the larger enterprise of cognitive

science and a specifi c manifestation of mentalistic thinking,

contributions on these general topics set the stage.

The Pragmatics of Interaction

Edited by Sigurd D’hondt, Jan-Ola Östman

and Jef Verschueren

Ghent University / University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume is dedicated to the empirical investigation of

the way human beings organize their interaction in natural

environments and how they use talk for accomplishing

actions and their contexts. Starting from Goff man’s

observation that interaction exhibits a structure in its own

right that cannot be reduced to the psychological properties

of the individual nor to society, it contains a selection

of articles documenting the various levels of interactional

organization. In addition to treatments of basic concepts

such as sequence, participation, prosody and style and

some topical articles on phenomena like reported speech

and listener response, it also includes overviews of specifi c

traditions (conversation analysis, ethnomethodology) and

articles on eminent authors (Goff man, Sacks) who had a

formative infl uence on the fi eld.

Grammar, Meaning and Pragmatics

Edited by Frank Brisard, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

University of Antwerp / University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume looks at the field of linguistic pragmatics from a primarily

grammatical angle. That is, it asks in which particular sense a variety of

older and more recent functional (rather than generative) models of grammar

relate to the study of language in use: how this affects their general

outlook on language structure, whether issues of language use inform the

very makeup of these models or are merely included as possible research

themes, and how far the actual integration of pragmatics ultimately goes

(is it a module/layer or is the model truly “usage-based”?). Each of the

authors presenting these models has taken systematic care to highlight the

relevant problems and focus on the implications of considering pragmatic

phenomena from the point of view of grammar. Furthermore, a limited

number of chapters deal with traditional topics in the grammatical literature,

and specifically those which are called pragmatic because they either

are not strictly concerned with truth (semantics), or receive their (truth)

value only from an interaction with context.

Variation and Change

Pragmatic perspectives

Edited by Mirjam Fried, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

Institute for the Czech Language, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic

/ University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume focuses on the dynamic aspects of language and reviews the

relevant developments in variationist and diachronic scholarship. The

areas explored in the volume concern several general themes: specific

methodological approaches, from comparative reconstruction to evolutionary

pragmatics; issues in intra-lingual variation in terms of standard

and non-standard varieties; cross-linguistic variation, including its crosscultural

dimension; and the study of diachronic relations across linguistic

patterns, including changes in all areas of pragmatic patterns and categories.

The volume argues for accepting and developing actively a systematic

connection between research in diachrony, synchronic variation, and

typology, while also incorporating the socio-cognitive perspective in linguistic

analysis as a particularly promising source of useful methodology

and explanatory models.

Society and Language Use

Edited by Jürgen Jaspers, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

University of Antwerp / University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume underlines the mutually constitutive relation between society

and language use. It highlights a number of the most prominent approaches

of this relation and it draws attention to a selected number of topics that

the study of language in its social context has characteristically brought

to bear. Despite their theoretical and methodological differences, each of

the chapters in this book assumes that it is necessary to look at society and

language use as interdependent phenomena, and that by attending to microscopic

linguistic phenomena one is also keeping a finger on the pulse of

broader, macroscopic social tendencies that at the same time facilitate and

constrain language use. The introduction provides a sketch of the intellectual

antecedents of the volume’s two ‘mother disciplines’, viz., linguistics

and social theory before pointing at recent common ground in the rising

attention for discourse and what has come to be called ‘late-modernity’.

Discursive Pragmatics

Edited by Jan Zienkowski, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

University of Antwerp / University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume focuses on theories and phenomena at the level of discourse,

but leaving aside conversational interaction. It provides the reader with

pragmatics-oriented information on discourse analysis, critical discourse

analysis and critical linguistics, as well as text linguistics and appraisal

theory, while introducing other specific approaches to discourse through

concepts such as polyphony, intertextuality, genre, and énonciation.

Furthermore, topics such as public discourse, narrative, figures of speech,

cohesion and coherence, pragmatic markers, manipulation, and humor,

are all dealt with in separate chapters. The binding idea, explained in the

introduction, is that ‘discursive pragmatics’ may serve as a platform for a

diversity of perspectives on discourse, as they have emerged not only in the

language sciences but also in the humanities and social sciences in general.

Pragmatics in Practice

Edited by Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume focuses on what pragmatics is good for – beyond the very

discipline of pragmatics as such. The chapters in the volume thus address

the importance of taking a pragmatic perspective on traditional fields

of applied linguistics (contrastive and error analysis, translation), and

they address the core of pragmatics as the study of language use (with

phenomena ranging from irony and emphasis to literacy and mass media,

and with approaches to the function of language like rhetoric, stylistics,

corpus analysis, and general semantics). The volume contains chapters

not only on the spoken and written modes of communication, but also on

signed language pragmatics and on computer-mediated communication.

The impact and usefulness of taking a pragmatic perspective on language

for a deeper understanding of clinical and rehabilitation practices has

recently received ever more focus; in this volume, aspects of this direction

of research are dealt with in the chapter on clinical pragmatics. In most of

the chapters in the volume, ethics has a core role to play, not only in issues

of authenticity in general in relation to research on language use, but also

in issues that have a direct influence on the (linguistic) culture and society

we live in, irrespective of whether we are part of a (linguistic) majority or

a minority, or a minority within a minority: language policy and language

planning, language ecology, and language in relation to legal matters.

Philosophical Perspectives for Pragmatics

Edited by Marina Sbisà, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren

Università di Trieste / University of Helsinki / University of Antwerp

This volume focuses on the interface between pragmatics and philosophy

and reviews the philosophical background from which pragmatics

has taken inspiration and with which it is constantly confronted.

It provides the reader with information about authors relevant to the

development of pragmatics, trends or areas in philosophy that are relevant

for the definition of the main concepts in pragmatics or the characterization

of its cultural context, the neighbouring field of semantics

(with particular respect to truth-conditional semantics and some main

branches of formal semantics), and recent philosophical debates that

involve pragmatic notions such as indexicality and context. While most

of the references are to the analytic philosophical field, also perspectives

in so-called continental philosophy are taken into account.

Historical Sociopragmatics

Edited by Jonathan Culpeper

Lancaster University

Originally published as a special issue of Journal

of Historical Pragmatics 10:2 (2009), this is the

fi rst book to map out historical sociopragmatics,

a multidisciplinary fi eld located within

historical pragmatics, but overlapping with

socially-oriented fi elds, such as sociolinguistics

and critical discourse analysis. Historical sociopragmatics

has a central focus on historical

language use in its situational contexts, and

how those situational contexts engender norms

which speakers engage or exploit for pragmatic

purposes. The chapters represent a range of

ways in which historical sociopragmatics can be

understood and investigated. The reader will fi nd English texts from the

15th century through to the 18th, a variety of genres (including personal

correspondence, trial proceedings and plays), and both qualitative and

(corpus-based) quantitative analyses. Importantly, attention is given to

how contexts can be (re)constructed from written records, a sine qua non

of the fi eld. It will appeal to advanced-level students and scholars with

interests in pragmatics, especially socially-oriented pragmatics, and/or

historical linguistics, especially the history of English.

Images in Use

Towards the critical analysis of visual communication

Edited by Matteo Stocchetti and Karin Kukkonen

ARCADA University of Applied Sciences / University of Oxford

News coverage of EU negotiations, children’s

war memories or TV series glamourising political

processes – images pervade both private

and public discourse, and visual communication

plays a key role in our social negotiation

of values. Conceptualising images as “images

in use”, this volume considers the agencies

behind visual communication and its impact

on society.

Images in Use engages critically with traditional

approaches to visual analysis, off ers suggestions

for alternative, socially situated analyses

of images and demonstrates the explanatory force of thinking through

“images in use” in a series of case studies. The conceptual contributions

consider broader issues of critical theory, representation, as well as the

mediatisation of politics. The case studies off er a survey of current visual

communication including news coverage, political cartoons, political

rhetoric, memory culture, celebrity humanitarianism, reality TV, as well as

the narratives of blockbuster cinema and comics.

This volume proposes a new approach to visual communication, situating

images in their social contexts and identifying the real, rhetorical and

political impact of their use.

Indentured Identities

Resistance and accommodation in plantation-era Fiji

Farzana Gounder

International Pacifi c College

The book explores the historical dimension of

Indian indenture from within the lived experience

of laborers, who emigrated to Fiji from

colonial India a century ago. As these laborers

are no longer alive, one could argue that the

experience of indenture is no longer accessible,

if there had not been recordings of the laborers’

life narratives. It is seven of these audio recordings,

made for public broadcast, which form

the data for a fi ne-grained language-analysis to

unearth the life-world of indenture. Through

the merging of Labov’s high-point analysis

with Bamberg’s positioning analysis, the book

focuses on the situated discursive performativity of identities, and draws

attention to the complex and at times confl icting positions within the life

narratives. Sorting through those positions resulted in the ultimate challenge

to the essentially homogenizing current master narrative discourse

on who can be classifi ed as an indentured laborer, and what signifi es as an

indenture experience.

Interlanguage Request Modifi cation

Edited by Maria Economidou-Kogetsidis and Helen Woodfi eld

University of Nicosia / University of Bristol

This is the fi rst edited volume dedicated specifi

cally to interlanguage request modifi cation.

It is a collection of empirical studies carried

out by an international array of scholars which

provides insights for researchers, graduate

students and language teachers on patterns of

interlanguage request modifi cation in a range

of research contexts and linguistic/cultural

settings. The research in this volume takes the

reader from a consideration of interlanguage

request modifi cation in naturally-occurring

e-mail data, through to elicited data from

e-DCT questionnaires on cyber-consultations,

to the interactive oral discourse of requests in open role-plays. As a whole,

the contributions incorporate research with learners from a range of

profi ciency levels and from diverse linguistic/cultural backgrounds while

the chapters individually examine developmental aspects of interlanguage

request modifi cation, requests in electronic contexts, comparative learner/

native speaker requests, and instructional eff ects on mitigation. The book

will undoubtedly become an important reference for researchers and

teachers not only in the fi eld of pragmatics but also in second language

acquisition, language teaching, (socio-)linguistics and discourse analysis.

Investigations into the Meta-Communicative

Lexicon of English

A contribution to historical pragmatics

Edited by Ulrich Busse and Axel Hübler

Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg / Friedrich Schiller University Jena

The volume contributes to historical pragmatics

an important chapter on what has so far not

been paid adequate attention to, i.e. historical

metapragmatics. More particularly, the collected

papers apply a meta-communicative approach

to historical texts by focusing on lexis that either

directly or metaphorically identifi es or characterizes

entire forms of communication or single

acts and act sequences or minor units. Within

the context of their use, such lexical expressions,

in fact, provide a key for disclosing historical

forms of communication; taken out of context,

they build the meta-communicative lexicon.

The articles follow three principal distinctions in that they investigate

the meta-communicative profi le of genres, meta-communicative lexical

sets and meta-communicative ethics and ideologies. They cover a broad

spectrum of text types that span the entire history of the English language

from Anglo-Saxon chronicles to computer-mediated communication.

The Japanese Sentence-Final Particles

in Talk-in-Interaction

Hideki Saigo

Kansai Gaidai University

The Japanese sentence-fi nal particles, ne, yo

and yone have proved notoriously diffi cult

to explain and are especially challenging for

second language users. This book investigates

the role of the particles in talk-in-interaction

with the aim of providing a comprehensive understanding

that accounts for their pragmatic

properties and sequential functions and that

provides a sound basis for second language

pedagogy. This study starts by setting up an

original particle function hypothesis based

on the fi gure/ground gestalt, and then tests its

validity empirically with unmarked, marked

and native/non-native talk-in-interaction data. The analysis illustrates

not only expectable but also unexpected or strategic use of particles, as

well as the problems posed for native speakers by non-native speakers

whose use of particles is idiosyncratic. The study demonstrates that the

proposed hypothesis is capable of accounting for all the uses of particles in

the extensive and varied data set examined. This book will be of interest to

students and scholars in pragmatics and CA and to teachers of Japanese as

a foreign language.

Journalism and the Political

Discursive tensions in news coverage of Russia

Felicitas Macgilchrist

Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research, Braunschweig, Germany

Journalism is often thought of as the ‘fourth

estate’ of democracy. This book suggests that

journalism plays a more radical role in politics,

and explores new ways of thinking about

news media discourse. It develops an approach

to investigating both hegemonic discourse

and discursive fi ssures, inconsistencies and

tensions. By analysing international news

coverage of post-Soviet Russia, including the

Beslan hostage-taking, Gazprom, Litvinenko

and human rights issues, it demonstrates the

(re)production of the ‘common-sense’ social

order in which one particular area of the world

is more developed, civilized and democratic than other areas. However,

drawing on Laclau, Mouff e and other post-foundational thinkers, it also

suggests that journalism is precisely the site where the instability of this

global social order becomes visible. The book should be of interest to

scholars of discourse analysis, journalism and communication studies,

cultural studies and political science, and to anyone interested in ‘positive’

discourse analysis and practical counter-discursive strategies.

Keeping in touch with Pragma-Dialectics is written

to honor Frans van Eemeren and his work in

the fi eld of argumentation theory on the occasion

of his retirement. The volume contains 17

contributions from teams of authors consisting

of a combination of a pragma-dialectician

and one or two researchers with a diff erent

background in the fi eld of argumentation. In

this volume, comparisons between the pragmadialectical

approach and other approaches are

made, aspects of strategic maneuvering such as

the use of presentational techniques, adaptation

to the audience and the selection of topics

are dealt with and the infl uence of specifi c institutional contexts such

as politics, medicine and internet forums on strategic maneuvering are

discussed.

Keyness in Texts

Edited by Marina Bondi and Mike Scott

University of Modena & Reggio Emilia / Aston University

This is corpus linguistics with a text linguistic

focus. The volume concerns lexical inequality,

the fact that some words and phrases share the

quality of being key – and thereby refl ect or

promote important themes – in some textual

contexts, while others do not. The patterning

of words which diff er in their centrality to text

meaning is of increasing interest to corpus

linguistics. At the same time software resources

are yielding increasingly more detailed ways of

identifying and studying the linkages between

key words and phrases in text databases. This

volume brings together work from some of the

leading researchers in this fi eld. It presents thirteen studies organized in

three sections, the fi rst containing a series of studies exploring the nature

of keyness itself, then a set of fi ve studies looking at keyness in specifi c

discourse contexts, and then three studies with an educational focus.

Korean Honorifi cs and Politeness

in Second Language Learning

Lucien Brown

School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

This book investigates the ways that advanced

speakers of Korean as a second language perceive,

use and learn the complexities of the Korean

honorifi cs system. Despite their advanced

profi ciency in Korean, the study shows that

the honorifi cs use of these speakers diverges in

crucial ways from native speaker norms. It is argued

that, rather than refl ecting the language

competence of these speakers as such, this

usage is linked to questions of the identity of

“language learners” and “foreigners” in Korean

society. In addition, it shows the infl uence of

confl icting ideologies regarding the “meaning”

of “politeness”. This argument is backed up by rich data collected through

mixed methods (discourse completion tests, role-plays, natural interactions,

introspective interviews), allowing for a detailed picture of how

the honorifi cs use of second language speakers emerges in context. The

book concludes by discussing the implications of the study for politeness

research, interlanguage pragmatics and language pedagogy.

Language, Gender and Sexual Identity

Poststructuralist perspectives

Heiko Motschenbacher

Goethe University Frankfurt

This book makes an innovative contribution to

the relatively young fi eld of Queer Linguistics.

Subscribing to a poststructuralist framework,

it presents a critical, deconstructionist

perspective on the discursive construction of

heteronormativity and gender binarism from

a linguistic point of view. On the one hand, the

book provides an outline of Queer approaches

to issues of language, gender and sexual identity

that is of interest to students and scholars

new to the fi eld. On the other hand, the empirical

analyses of language data represent material

that also appeals to experts in the fi eld. The

book deals with repercussions of the discursive materialisation of heteronormativity

and gender binarism in various kinds of linguistic data. These

include stereotypical genderlects, structural linguistic gender categories

(especially from a contrastive linguistic point of view), the discursive sedimentation

of female and feminine generics, linguistic constructions of the

gendered body in advertising and the usage of personal reference forms to

create characters in Queer Cinema. Throughout the book, readers become

aware of the wounding potential that gendered linguistic forms may possess

in certain contexts.

Learning and Teaching Narrative Inquiry

Travelling in the Borderlands

Edited by Sheila Trahar

University of Bristol

In the fi nal chapter of this volume, the authors

refer to the “pedagogical vantage points offered

by narrative inquiry”, an apt comment

that encapsulates the volume’s purpose and

its spirit. As an increasing number of people

throughout the world – and from a broad range

of disciplines – are turning to narrative as a

research methodology, this volume is timely in

its focus on the learning and teaching of this

approach. The contributors to the volume, all

narrative scholars themselves, write about the

creative and challenging pedagogical activities

that they use in order to enable others to learn

about and do narrative research. The volume will be of particular interest

to those teaching narrative research methodologies at both undergraduate

and postgraduate level in the social sciences, medical sciences and the

humanities. The contributions from Hong Kong, Israel, Europe and North

America, all refl ect critically on the rich complexities of using and teaching

narrative in those contexts and attend closely to the diverse constituencies

of their learning communities.

Letter Writing in Late Modern Europe

Edited by Marina Dossena and Gabriella Del Lungo Camiciotti

University of Bergamo / University of Florence

In recent years there has been a renewed interest

in correspondence both as a literary genre

and as cultural practice, and several studies

have appeared, mainly spanning the centuries

between Early and Late Modern times. However,

it is between the eighteenth and nineteenth

centuries that the roots of contemporary usage

begin to evolve, thanks to the circulation of

new educational materials and more widespread

schooling practices.

In this volume, chapters representing diverse

but complementary methodological approaches

discuss linguistic and discursive practices of correspondence in

Late Modern Europe, in order to off er material for the comparative, crosslinguistic

analyses of patterns occurring in diff erent social contexts.

The volume aims to provide a general and solid methodological structure

for the study of largely untapped language material from a variety of

comparable sources, and is expected to appeal to scholars and students

interested in the linguistic history of epistolary writing practices, as well

as to all those interested in the more recent history of European languages.

Lexical Meaning in Dialogic Language Use

Sebastian Feller

University of Münster

Lexical Meaning in Dialogic Language Use

addresses

a number of central issues in the fi eld of lexical

semantics. Starting off from an action-theoretical

view of communication meaning is defi ned

as something that speakers do in dialogic

language use. Meaning as ‘meaning-in-use’

opens up a new perspective on a number of

aspects: how can we defi ne the lexical unit?

What about the make-up of the meaning side?

Does polysemy really exist? And is encyclopaedic

information to be fully integrated into the

lexicon?

These questions are examined along the analyses of authentic lexical

material from corpora. At the end exemplary lexical entries represent

both the expression and meaning side of the analyzed material, providing

incentive not only for theory but also for practical applications like foreign

language teaching, lexicography, translational studies, and so forth.

This book will appeal to anyone interested in language use and meaning

and understanding especially.

Lexical Pragmatics and Theory of Mind

The acquisition of connectives

Sandrine Zuff erey

University of Geneva

The concept of theory of mind (ToM), a hot

topic in cognitive psychology for the past

twenty-fi ve years, has gained increasing importance

in the fi elds of linguistics and pragmatics.

However, even though the relationship

between ToM and verbal communication is

now recognized, the extent, causality and full

implications of this connection remain mostly

to be explored. This book presents a comprehensive

discussion of the interface between

language, communication, and theory of

mind, and puts forward an innovative proposal

regarding the role of discourse connectives

for this interface. The proposed analysis of connectives is tested from the

perspective of their acquisition, using empirical methods such as corpus

analysis and controlled experiments, thus placing the study of connectives

within the emerging framework of experimental pragmatics.

Literary Community-Making

The dialogicality of English texts

from the seventeenth century to the present

Edited by Roger D. Sell

Åbo Akademi University

The writing and reading of so-called literary

texts can be seen as processes which are

genuinely communicational. They lead, that

is to say, to the growth of communities within

which individuals acknowledge not only each

other’s similarities but diff erences as well. In

this new book, Roger D. Sell and his colleagues

apply the communicational perspective to

the past four centuries of literary activity in

English. Paying detailed attention to texts –

both canonical and non-canonical – by Amelia

Lanyer, Thomas Coryate, John Boys, Pope,

Coleridge, Arnold, Kipling, William Plomer,

Auden, Walter Macken, Robert Kroetsch, Rudy Wiebe and Lyn Hejinian,

the book shows how the communicational issues of addressivity, commonality,

dialogicality and ethics have arisen in widely diff erent historical

contexts. At a metascholarly level, it suggests that the communicational

criticism of literary texts has signifi cant cultural, social and political roles

to play in the post-postmodern era of rampant globalization.

Living with Patriarchy

Discursive constructions of gendered subjects across cultures

Edited by Danijela Majstorović and Inger Lassen

University of Banja Luka / Aalborg University

This innovative book critically examines patriarchal

hegemonies from a variety of theoretical

and methodological perspectives. It challenges

the Anglo-American bias of much gender and

language research to date by including rich

new data and insights from scholars working

in countries such as Colombia, Liberia, Kenya,

Vietnam, Japan, Greece, Bosnia-Herzegovina,

Sweden, Denmark and Poland. Within these

diff erent geographical contexts, a broadly defi

ned notion of culture incorporates organizational

cultures, subcultures of society, cultures

of clans or tribes as well as national cultures,

depending on the meanings ascribed to the notion by people in public

and private spaces. The central question of the volume, which is addressed

through a variety of data, diff erent discourse analytical approaches and

research methodologies, is: How is gender constructed in social life and in

patriarchal systems through discourse in diff erent parts of the world?

Making Requests by Chinese EFL Learners

Vincent X. Wang

University of Macau

Requests, a speech act people frequently use

to perform everyday social interactions, have

attracted particular attention in politeness

theories, pragmatics, and second language

acquisition. This book looks at request

behaviours in a signifi cant EFL population –

Chinese-speaking learners of English. It will

draw on recent literature, such as politeness

theories and cognitive models for interlanguage

pragmatics development, as well as

placing special emphasis on situational context

and formulaic language to provide a more

fi ne-grained investigation. A range of request

scenarios has been specifi cally designed for this project, from common

service encounters to highly face-threatening situations such as borrowing

money and asking a favour of police offi cer. Our fi ndings on Chinese-style

pragmatic behaviours and patterns of pragmatic development will be of

value to cross-cultural pragmatics researchers, TESOL professionals, and

university students with an interest in this area of study.

Media Intertextualities

Edited by Mie Hiramoto

National University of Singapore

This collection of critical essays, originally

published in Pragmatics and Society 1:2 (2010),

discusses how normative biases that shape our

relation to the world are constructed through

discursive practice in media discourse. The

intertextual perspective it adopts is crucial for

our understanding of how media representations

of speakers and languages shape many of

our preconceptions of others. Mediatization is

inherently intertextual; the very nature of this

process involves extracting the speech behavior

of particular speakers or groups from a highly

specifi c context and refracting and reshaping it

to be inserted in another stream of representation. The notion of intertextuality

becomes a useful concept for the linguistic anthropological study

of media discourse in the context of modernity, as it provides us with a

tool for exploring the semiotic processes that underlie the way in which

the media negotiate and reinscribe the complex relationships of identity

that characterize late modern subjecthood.

A Method for Linguistic Metaphor Identifi cation

From MIP to MIPVU

Gerard J. Steen, Aletta G. Dorst, J. Berenike Herrmann,

Anna A. Kaal, Tina Krennmayr and Trijntje Pasma

VU University Amsterdam

This book presents a complete method for

the identifi cation of metaphor in language at

the level of word use. It is based on extensive

methodological and empirical corpus-linguistic

research in two languages, English and

Dutch. The method is formulated as an explicit

manual of instructions covering one chapter,

the method being a development and refi nement

of the popular MIP procedure presented

by the Pragglejaz Group in 2007. The extended

version is called MIPVU, as it was developed

at VU University Amsterdam. Its application

is demonstrated in fi ve case studies addressing

metaphor in English news texts, conversations, fi ction, and academic

texts, and Dutch news texts and conversations. Two methodological

chapters follow reporting a series of successful reliability tests and a series

of post hoc troubleshooting exercises. The fi nal chapter presents a fi rst

empirical analysis of the fi ndings, and shows what this type of methodological

attention can mean for research and theory.

Multilingual Discourse Production

Diachronic and Synchronic Perspectives

Edited by Svenja Kranich, Viktor Becher, Steff en Höder

and Juliane House

University of Hamburg

This volume presents discourse production

in multilingual contexts as a specifi c type of

language contact situation. Translation may

be seen as the prototypical type of multilingual

discourse production, other types would

include parallel text production in diff erent

languages (e.g. for websites) or the production

of versions more loosely connected with the

source text. When divergent communicative

norms and conventions come into contact

in any of these types of text production, one

may fi nd that such conventions transcend

established language boundaries, potentially

leading to the emergence of new genres. This volume represents the fi rst

collection of papers that focus on the specifi c properties of language

contact through multilingual discourse production. It brings together

approaches by historical linguists, language contact researchers and translation

scholars, thus presenting the topic in its full variety and providing

valuable suggestions for further research in this emerging fi eld of study.

Multilingualism at Work

From policies to practices in public, medical

and business settings

Edited by Bernd Meyer and Birgit Apfelbaum

University of Hamburg / University of Applied Sciences Harz

This volume focuses on work situations in

Europe, North America and South-Africa,

such as academic, medical and public sector,

or business settings, in which participants

have to make constant use of more than one

language to cooperate with partners, clients,

or colleagues. Central questions are how the

social and linguistic organization of work is

adapted to the necessity of using diff erent

languages and how multilingualism impinges

on the communicative outcome of diff erent

types of discourse or genres. Thus, the authors

are all interested in multilingual practices ‘at

work’, which is to say how diff erent forms of multilingual communication

are managed, fl exibly adjusted to, acquired, and/or improved in a

given workplace setting that often calls for particular implicit or explicit

language policies. Thus, this volume contributes to the study of workplace

communication in a globalized world by drawing on diff erent types of

authentic data.

Narrative Revisited

Telling a story in the age of new media

Edited by Christian R. Hoff mann

University of Augsburg

The volume examines the role of narratives in

old and new media. Its ten contributions fi rstly

center on the various forms and functions narratives

assume in computer-mediated environments,

e.g. websites, weblogs, message boards, etc.

In this light, past and present approaches to

the description of narratives are presented and

reevaluated based on their ability to capture

the conceptual and methodological exigencies

of new media. Secondly, the volume sheds new

light upon the multimodal composition of

new media narratives which typically feature

multiple co-occurring semiotic modes such

as speech, sound, text, static or moving images. In this vein, each paper

explores a wide array of authentic examples from text genres as diverse as

political speeches, real-time narratives and contemporary feature fi lms. Its

wide scope should not only appeal to linguists interested in the discursive

and pragmatic dimension of narratives but also to scholars and students in

other scientifi c disciplines.

New Adventures in Language and Interaction

Edited by Jürgen Streeck

The University of Texas at Austin

In this book sixteen international scholars

of language and social interaction describe

their distinct frameworks of analysis. Taking

conversation analysis and interactional sociolinguistics

as their points of departure and

investigating ordinary conversation as well as

institutions such as health care, therapy, and

city council meetings, they often incorporate

gesture, prosody, and the listener’s behavior

in the analysis of talk. While some approaches

are grounded in a critique of the major schools

of interaction analysis, others integrate the

interactionist perspective with ideas from

fi elds such as systemic-functional linguistics, distributed cognition, and

the sociology of knowledge. Each chapter combines a statement of the

terms and methods of analysis with an exemplary analysis of a moment

of interaction. New Adventures in Language and Interaction gives an excellent

overview of the novelty and diversity of interaction-focused perspectives

on language and of the heterogeneity of approaches that have evolved

from the pioneering work of Sacks and Schegloff , Gumperz, and their

co-workers.

Patterns, Meaningful Units

and Specialized Discourses

Edited by Ute Römer and Rainer Schulze

University of Michigan / University of Hannover

This collection of papers explores some facets

in the areas of Corpus Linguistics and Phraseology

which have gone unnoticed so far. With

the aid of a range of diff erent corpora and

new-generation software tools, the authors

tackle specialized domains and discourse in

specialized settings, utilizing some innovative

approaches to the study of recurrent features

and patterns in the languages of economics,

history, linguistics, politics, and other fi elds.

The papers critically examine contemporary

discourses in which experts and laypersons are

equally involved, showing that the spoken and

written texts, selected from various specialized corpora, can be seen as collective

memory banks. The series of refl ections and specialized meanings

uncovered in these texts are closely tied to particular sequences of patterned

chunks in language and off er exciting insights into the inseparability

of lexis and grammar.

The contributions to this volume were previously published in International

Journal of Corpus Linguistics 13:3 (2008).

Perspectives in Politics and Discourse

Edited by Urszula Okulska and Piotr Cap

University of Warsaw / University of Lódz

The volume explores the vast and heterogeneous

territory of Political Linguistics, structuring

and developing its concepts, themes and

methodologies into combined and coherent

Analysis of Political Discourse (APD). Dealing

with an extensive and representative variety

of topics and domains – political rhetoric,

mediatized communication, ideology, politics

of language choice, etc. – it off ers uniquely

systematic, theoretically grounded insights in

how language is used to perform power-enforcing/imbuing

practices in social interaction,

and how it is deployed for communicating

decisions concerning language itself. The twenty chapters in the volume,

written by specialists in political linguistics, (critical) discourse analysis,

pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and social psychology, address the diversity

of political discourse to propose novel perspectives from which common

analytic procedures can be drawn and followed. The volume is thus an

essential resource for anyone looking for a coherent research agenda in

explorations of political discourse as a point of reference for their own

academic activities, both scholarly and didactic.

The Post-Communist Condition

Public and private discourses of transformation

Edited by Aleksandra Galasińska and Dariusz Galasiński

University of Wolverhampton

This volume off ers interdisciplinary perspectives

on discourses in one national context of

post-communist transformation. Proposing

a macro-micro approach to discourse analysis

and transformation, it examines a spectrum

of topics including Polish history, with its ‘interpreters’;

changes in political bodies and the

media, policies of the Catholic Church and the

Institute of National Remembrance; xenophobia

and anti-Semitism, with the emergence of

unemployment and homelessness; experiences

of new gender relations and migrations.

In eff ect, drawing upon unique sets of data,

the book shows how post-communist transformation can be understood

through analyses of the changing public and private discourses. It shows

Polish post-communism as a fragile and uneasy transformation, with

people and institutions struggling to make sense of it and of life within

it. The volume will be of interest to a broad range of social scientists: discourse

analysts, sociologists, modern historians and political scientists, as

well as to the informed lay public.

Practices of Truth

An ethnomethodological inquiry into Arab contexts

Baudouin Dupret

Centre National de la Recherche Scientifi que

The claim of this book is that truth is a matter

of language games and practical achievements:

it is a “member phenomenon”. To document

this statement, it proceeds to the investigation

of instances of truth-related practices in various

Arab contexts. Bearing on the constitution

of actions and events, on what is factual or

objective, on predictability, consequentiality,

intentionality, causality, and on the many ways

people orient to them, such a varied set of questions

appears thoroughly moral. The praxeological

respecifi cation this book undertakes

leads to important considerations regarding

the question of morality in ordinary reasoning, and the categories and

categorizations on which that morality is based: moral values are publicly

available; morality has a modal logic; moral values and conventions have

an open texture; objectivity is a practical achievement carried out by members

of society; the moral order is an omnipresent, constitutive characteristic

of social practice.

Pragmaticizing Understanding

Studies for Jef Verschueren

Edited by Michael Meeuwis and Jan-Ola Östman

Ghent University / University of Helsinki

The ideas that mark modern-day pragmatics

are old, but did not start to get more systematically

developed until the 1960s and 1970s. Still,

the very recognition of pragmatics as a selfstanding

academic discipline is a product of the

1980s, not least made possible by the establishment

of the International Pragmatics Association.

One scholar in particular has devoted his

life both to IPrA and to the discipline.

This volume pays homage to Jef Verschueren

on the occasion of his 60th birthday. It celebrates

him for his long-standing dedication as

Secretary General of IPrA and for his scholarly contributions to the fi eld.

We owe to Jef Verschueren the insight that the processes through which

language users (do or do not) achieve understanding among each other

in communication can only be fully comprehended if approached from a

pragmatic perspective, i.e. if understanding is pragmaticized.

The chapters in this book are written by scholars who, like Jef Verschueren,

have played a key role in the genesis and development of the fi eld, and

who still actively contribute to its advancement today. Each author looks

back, evaluates the present, and takes on new challenges.

Pragmatics and Autolexical Grammar

In honor of Jerry Sadock

Edited by Etsuyo Yuasa, Tista Bagchi and Katharine Beals

Ohio State University / NISTADS & University of Delhi /

University of Pennsylvania & Drexel University

This book presents papers in honor of Jerry Sadock’s

rich legacy in pragmatics and Autolexical

Grammar. Highlights of the pragmatics section

include Larry Horn on almost, barely, and assertoric

inertia; William Lycan on Sadock’s resolution

of the Performadox with truth1 and truth2;

and Jay Atlas on Moore’s Paradox and the truth

value of propositions of belief. Highlights of

the Autolexical Grammar section include Fritz

Newmeyer’s comparison of the minimalist,

autolexical, and transformational treatments

of English nominals; Barbara Abott’s extension

of Sadock’s PRO-less syntax to a PRO-less

semantics of the infi nitival complements of know how; and Haj Ross’s

syntactic connections between semantically related English pseudoclefts.

Encompassing a range of languages (Aleut, Bangla, Greenlandic, Japanese,

and a home-based sign language) and extending into psycholinguistics

(language acquisition, sentence processing, and autism) this volume will

interest a range of readers, from theoretical linguists and philosophers of

language to applied linguists and exotic language specialists.

The Pragmatics of Humour

across Discourse Domains

Edited by Marta Dynel

University of Lodz

This edited volume brings together a range

of contributions solely on the linguistics of

humour. Rather than favour one approach, this

collection of articles gives a state-of-the-art picture

of current directions in pragmatic humour

studies. The contributors assume multifarious

theoretical perspectives and discuss a wide

array of issues germane to diff erent types of humour

across discourse domains. Consequently,

the whole gamut of humorous forms and

mechanisms are elucidated, such as surrealist

irony, incongruity in register humour, mechanisms

of pun formation, as well as interpersonal

functions of conversational humour. In addition, the papers address

diversifi ed manifestations of humour, such as puns in Shakespeare’s plays,

gendered jokes on the Internet, sexuality in anti-proverbs, Woody Allen’s

prose, humour in “Friends”, and parody by Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

Most importantly, the chapters off er new research fi ndings and advocate

novel theoretical conceptualisations of humorous phenomena, drawing

on the wealth of existing scholarship. Therefore, the volume is bound to

serve as a well of knowledge and inspiration for both seasoned and beginning

researchers with interests in the pragmatics of humour.

The Pragmatics of Requests and Apologies

Developmental patterns of Mexican students

Elizabeth Flores Salgado

Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, México

The purpose of this research is to analyse the

pragmatic development of language groups

at diff erent profi ciency levels and to investigate

the relationship between interlanguage

pragmatics and grammatical competence. For

this study, 36 native Spanish speaking EFL

learners at diff erent profi ciency levels were

asked to respond in English to 24 diff erent situations

that called for the speech acts of request

and apology. Results showed three important

aspects. The fi rst fi nding suggested that basic

adult learners possess a pragmatic knowledge

in their L1 that allows them to focus on the intended

meaning and, in most cases, to assemble an utterance that conveys

a pragmatic intention and satisfi es the communicative demands of a social

situation. The second fi nding revealed that there are two essential conditions

to communicate a linguistic action: the knowledge of the relevant

linguistic rules and the knowledge of how to use them appropriately

and eff ectively in a specifi c context. The fi ndings further suggested that

advanced learners possess the grammatical knowledge to produce an illocutionary

act, but they need to learn the specifi c L2 pragmatic conventions

that enable them to know when to use these grammatical forms and under

which circumstances.

Projecting the Future

through Political Discourse

The case of the Bush doctrine

Patricia L. Dunmire

Kent State University

This monograph examines the rhetorical

nature and function of representations of

the future in political discourse, focusing on

political actors’ use of hegemonic images of

future “reality” to achieve their political goals.

It argues that a key ideological dimension

of political rhetoric lies in politicians’ use of

projections of the future to legitimate policies

and actions. This argument is grounded

in systemic-functional and critical discourse

analyses of the “Bush Doctrine,” the U.S. policy

response to the September 11 terrorist attacks

which sanctioned a “preemptive” military posture.

By focusing on the discursive construction of the future, this project

addresses a lacunae in critical discourse studies and calls attention to the

crucial role that the discourse and practice of “futurology” has played in

post-Cold War politics and society. It will be of value to scholars interested

in the discourses of politics, the “war on terror,” U.S. national security, and

futurology.

The Promise of Dialogue

The dialogic turn in the production

and communication of knowledge

Louise Phillips

Roskilde University

It has become commonplace to employ

dialogue-based approaches in producing and

communicating knowledge in diverse fi elds.

Here, “dialogue” has become a buzzword that

promises democratic, participatory processes

of mutual learning and knowledge co-production.

But what does “dialogue” actually entail

in the fi elds in which it is practised and how

can we analyse those practices in ways that take

account of their complexities?

The Promise of Dialogue presents a novel theoretical

framework for analysing the dialogic turn

in the production and communication of knowledge that builds bridges

across three research traditions - dialogic communication theory, action

research, and science and technology studies.

It also provides an empirically rich account of the dialogic turn through

case studies of how dialogue is enacted in the fi elds of planned communication,

public engagement with science and collaborative research. A critical,

refl exive approach is taken that interrogates the complexities, tensions

and dilemmas inherent in the enactment of “dialogue” and is oriented

towards further developing dialogic practices from a position normatively

supportive of the dialogic turn.

Prosody in Interaction

Edited by Dagmar Barth-Weingarten, Elisabeth Reber

and Margret Selting

University of Freiburg / University of Erlangen-Nürnberg / University of Potsdam

Prosody is constitutive for spoken interaction.

In more than 25 years, its study has grown

into a full-fl edged and very productive fi eld

with a sound catalogue of research methods

and principles. This volume presents the state

of the art, illustrates current research trends

and uncovers potential directions for future

research. It will therefore be of major interest

to everyone studying spoken interaction. The

collection brings together an impressive range

of internationally renowned scholars from

diff erent, yet closely related and compatible research

traditions which have made a signifi cant

contribution to the fi eld. They cover issues such as the units of language,

the contextualization of actions and activities, conversational modalities

and genres, the display of aff ect and emotion, the multimodality of

interaction, language acquisition and aphasia. All contributions are based

on empirical, audio- and/or video-recorded data of natural talk-in-interaction,

including languages such as English, German and Japanese. The

methodologies employed come from Ethnomethodology, Conversation

Analysis and Interactional Linguistics.

Public Information Messages

A contrastive genre analysis of state-citizen communication

Anne Barron

Public information messages are an important means of state-citizen communication

in today’s societies. Using this genre, citizens are directed to

“never ever drink and drive”, to “slow down” and to “learn to say no”. Yet,

this book presents the fi rst in-depth analysis of public information messages

from a linguistic perspective, and indeed also from a cross-cultural

perspective. Specifi cally, the study, adopting genre analysis, contrasts a corpus

of state-run national public information campaigns in Germany and

Ireland. A taxonomy of moves is developed inductively and the interactional

features of the genre are analysed and related to the context of use.

The comprehensive discussion of theoretical and methodological issues,

the in-depth analysis and the extensive bibliography make this book of interest

to researchers and students in (contrastive) discourse analysis, (crosscultural)

pragmatics, contrastive rhetoric, advertising, social psychology,

mass communication and media studies. Copy-writers will also profi t

from the insights gained, particularly within the context of an increase in

Europe-wide public information campaigns.

Referring Expressions in English and Japanese

Patterns of use in dialogue processing

Etsuko Yoshida

Mie University

It is a major challenge for linguists to explore

the relations between referential choice and

the discourse structure in dialogues, because,

unlike written modes of discourse, dialogue as

an interactional mode of discourse needs careful

treatment for linguistic analysis. This book

investigates how discourse entities are linked

with topic chaining and discourse coherence by

showing that the choice and the distribution of

referring expressions is correlated with center

transition patterns in the centering framework.

It provides original empirical research into

the use of referring expressions in English

and Japanese task-based dialogues, and applies and extends theoretical

frameworks which attempt to account for local and global discourse

coherence. Using a discourse-based integrated approach to anaphora

resolution, Yoshida proposes a unifi ed account on the patterns of use of

referring expressions. The book will be of interest to discourse analysts,

computational linguists, scholars of semantics and pragmatics, and crosslinguistics

researchers.

Representations and Othering in Discourse

The construction of Turkey in the EU context

Beyza Ç. Tekin

Galatasaray University

This volume examines the construction of

Turkey’s possible European Union accession

in French political discourse. In today’s

France, heated debates regarding Turkey’s EU

membership are turning into an essential part

of European identity formation. Once again,

the ‘Turkish Other’ functions as a mirror for

defi ning not only the ‘European Self’, but also

European values. By providing a genuine and

multi-disciplinary approach for studying the

Otherness attributed to Turkey, this book

contributes to our understanding of the Self/

Other nexus in International Relations. Within

a Critical Discourse Analysis framework, this study explores the sociohistorical

basis of the construction of Turkey’s Otherness in an attempt

to identify the processes through which past memories, representations,

images and fantasies regarding Turkey are inserted into the French social

imaginary. Focusing on these signifi cations, which are (re)produced and

become manifest through language, this book strives to uncover the link

between discourse and political action.

Represented Discourse, Resonance and Stance

in Joking Interaction in Mexican Spanish

Minerva Oropeza-Escobar

Center for Research and Higher Education in Social Anthropology,

Gulf of Mexico branch

The book provides a new angle for the study

of otherwise amply discussed discourse and

interactional phenomena. The new perspective

consists in addressing the interconnections

between resonance, stance, represented discourse

and joking in Mexican conversational

discourse. In so doing, it contributes to a better

understanding of the interplay between collaboration,

intersubjectivity and emergence,

among other relevant issues. Scholars and

advanced students concerned with dialogic

syntax theory, stance theory and Spanish, will

fi nd the present analysis interesting and innovative.

However, the writing and methodology, based on clearly discussed

and presented examples from selected conversational excerpts, including

graphic representations of linguistic and discourse data, makes the analysis

easy to follow also to non-specialists. The book is thus interesting to a

broad circle of readers, whether they are concerned with any of the issues

dealt with or with their mutual connections, whether they are specialists

or not.

This volume presents a ground-breaking

overview of the interconnections between

socio-cultural reality and language practices,

by looking at the diff erent ways in which social

roles are performed, maintained, adopted and

assigned through linguistic means. The introductory

chapter discusses and evaluates different

theoretical approaches to the question,

and the eight articles by leading scholars in

the fi eld off er a multiplicity of methodological

and theoretical approaches to the description

and interpretation of social roles as expressed

in a variety of texts from the eighteenth and

nineteenth centuries. While the specifi c period covered is Late Modern

English, the theoretical insights off ered will be of interest to any linguist

interested in sociolinguistics, pragmatics and the history of English, as

well as scholars in the social sciences and social history interested in the

concept and realisation of roles.

Social Structure, Space and Possession

in Tongan Culture and Language

An ethnolinguistic study

Svenja Völkel

University of Mainz

This interdisciplinary study investigates the

relationship between culture, language and

cognition based on the aspects of social structure,

space and possession in Tonga, Polynesia.

Grounded on extensive fi eld research, Völkel

explores the subject from an anthropological as

well as from a linguistic perspective. The book

provides new insights into the language of

respect, an honorifi c system which is deeply anchored

in the societal hierarchy, spatial descriptions

that are determined by socio-cultural and

geocentric parameters, kinship terminology

and possessive categories that perfectly express

the system of social status inequalities among relatives. These examples

impressively show that language is deeply anchored in its cultural context.

Moreover, the linguistic structures refl ect the underlying cognitive frame

of its speakers. Just as several cultural practices (sitting order, access to

land and gift exchange processes) the linguistic means are not only expressions

of stratifi ed social networks but also tools to maintain or negotiate

the underlying socio-cultural system.

Soliloquy in Japanese and English

Yoko Hasegawa

University of California, Berkeley

Language is recognized as an instrument

of communication and thought. Under the

shadow of prevailing investigation of language

as a communicative means, its function as a

tool for thinking has long been neglected in

empirical research, vis-à-vis philosophical discussions.

Language manifests itself diff erently

when there is no interlocutor to communicate

and interact. How is it similar and how does it

diff er in these two situations—communication

and thought? Soliloquy in Japanese and English

analyzes experimentally-obtained soliloquy

data in Japanese and in English and explores

the potential utility of such data for delving into this uncharted territory.

It deals with fi ve topics in which elimination from discourse of an addressee

is particularly relevant and signifi cant. Four are derived from Japanese:

the sentence-fi nal particles ne and yo, deixis and anaphora, gendered

speech, linguistic politeness; the fi fth topic is the use of the second person

pronoun you in soliloquy in English.

South Slavic Discourse Particles

Edited by Mirjana N. Dedaić and Mirjana Mišković-Luković

Georgetown University / University of Kragujevac

Discourse particles, discourse markers and pragmatic

markers refer to phenomena that linguists have

begun to probe only since the mid-1980s. Longignored

in traditional linguistics and textbook

grammars, and still relegated to marginal status

in South Slavic, these linguistic phenomena

have emerged as invaluable devices for cuttingedge

theories of the semantics/pragmatics interface.

This book, which is a pioneering study

in such linguistic phenomena in South Slavic

languages, is also among the fi rst of its kind for

a related group of languages. It builds on the

recent fi ndings of some of the most infl uential

linguistically-oriented theories, such as Relevance Theory, Argumentation

Theory and coherence-based approaches to explain the meaning and use

of certain discourse/pragmatic particles/markers in Bulgarian, Macedonian,

Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and Slovene. These particles/markers

are part of the contemporary and historical lexicons of the South Slavic

languages, varying across regions and time, but also diff ering in origin.

This book, which draws from naturally occurring data, written media and

constructed examples, aims at a wider audience including scholars working

in semantics/pragmatics and Slavic languages, and applied specialists

interested in this area of research. The authors hope that this book will be

Speech Act Performance

Theoretical, empirical and methodological issues

Edited by Alicia Martínez-Flor and Esther Usó-Juan

University Jaume I, Castelló

Speech acts are an important and integral part

of day-to-day life in all languages. In language

acquisition, the need to teach speech acts in

a target language has been demonstrated in

studies conducted in the fi eld of interlanguage

pragmatics which indicate that the performance

of speech acts may diff er considerably

from culture to culture, thus creating communication

diffi culties in cross-cultural encounters.

Considering these concerns, the aim of

this volume is two-fold: to deal with those

theoretical approaches that inform the process

of learning speech acts in particular contextual

and cultural settings; and, secondly, to present a variety of methodological

proposals, grounded on research-based ideas, for the teaching of the

major speech acts in second/foreign language classrooms. This volume is a

valuable theoretical and practical resource not only for researchers, teachers

and students interested in speech act learning/teaching but also for

textbook writers wishing to have an informed opinion on the pedagogical

implications derived from research on speech act performance.

Spaces of Polyphony

Edited by Clara-Ubaldina Lorda and Patrick Zabalbeascoa

Universitat Pompeu Fabra

Spaces of Polyphony

covers a lot of ground. It

echoes the voices of researchers and their

informants from many diff erent places and

backgrounds. Among the variety of languages

under study and methodological approaches

there is also a common ground and narrative

thread underpinning the polyphonic chorus of

the contributors. From a shared starting point

of discourse analysis and inspiration from

Bakhtin, the various authors span from East to

West, from Moscow to Texas, from Romania and

Czech Republic to Mexico. They look into all

ages, starting from early childhood, and many

walks of life, ranging from casual chatting among relatives to parliamentary

speeches and TV shows, including formal education, literary inner

monologue and translation. Irony, humour and self-awareness are recurrent

themes. The array of voices and dialogism studied in this book is such

that it even includes the silent (silenced) voices of people forced to express

their heritage by weaving their discourse.

Storied Confl ict Talk

Narrative construction in mediation

Katherine A. Stewart and Madeline M. Maxwell

University of Texas at Austin

Narrative analyses routinely investigate autobiographical

and interview data. This book

examines narratives-in-interaction co-constructed

by participants in formal mediation sessions,

by asking how many of the fi ve cases in the

videotaped data display the adversarial narrative

pattern pervasive within the interpersonal

confl ict literature, and secondly what other

narrative patterns may be present, and how

do they work? Focusing simultaneously at the

utterance level and the macro-levels present

within the larger dispute context, this book

reveals situated communicative practices by

which interlocutors interactively construct, resist, reproduce, and intertextually

transform adversarial narratives to produce outcomes consonant

with their underlying interests. In contrast to the dramaturgical model

traditionally used in narrative research, this book illuminates the emergent,

microgenetic character of narrative development.

Storytelling across Japanese

Conversational Genre

Edited by Polly E. Szatrowski

The University of Minnesota

This book investigates how Japanese participants

accommodate to and make use of genrespecifi

c characteristics to make stories tellable,

create interpersonal involvement, negotiate

responsibility, and show their personal selves.

The analyses of storytelling in casual conversation,

animation narratives, television talk

shows, survey interviews, and large university

lectures focus on participation/participatory

framework, topical coherence, involvement,

knowledge, the story recipient’s role, prosody

and nonverbal behavior. Story tellers across

genre are shown to use linguistic/paralinguistic

(prosody, reported speech, style shifting, demonstratives, repetition,

ellipsis, co-construction, connectives, fi nal particles, onomatopoeia) and

nonverbal (gesture, gaze, head nodding) devices to involve their recipients,

and recipients also use a multiple of devices (laughter, repetition, responsive

forms, posture changes) to shape the development of the stories.

Nonverbal behavior proves to be a rich resource and constitutive feature

of storytelling across genre. The analyses also shed new light on grammar

across genre (ellipsis, demonstratives, clause combining), and illustrate a

variety of methods for studying genre.

Storytelling and Drama

Exploring Narrative Episodes in Plays

Hugo Bowles

University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’

How do characters tell stories in plays and for

what dramatic purpose? This volume provides

the fi rst systematic analysis of narrative

episodes in drama from an interactional perspective,

applying sociolinguistic theories of

narrative and insights from conversation analysis

to literary dialogue. The aim of the book

is to show how narration can become drama

and how analysis of the way a character tells a

story can be the key to understanding its role in

the unfolding action. The book’s interactional

approach, which analyses the way in which the

characteristic features of everyday conversational

stories are used by dramatists to create literary eff ects, off ers an

additional tool for dramatic criticism. The book should be of interest to

scholars and students of narrative research, conversation and discourse

analysis, stylistics, dramatic discourse and theatre studies.

Strategic Maneuvering

in Argumentative Discourse

Extending the pragma-dialectical theory of argumentation

Frans H. van Eemeren

University of Amsterdam

In Strategic Maneuvering in Argumentative Discourse,

Frans H. van Eemeren brings together

the dialectical and the rhetorical dimensions

of argumentation by introducing the concept

of strategic maneuvering. Strategic maneuvering

refers to the arguer’s continual eff orts to

reconcile aiming for eff ectiveness with being

reasonable. It takes place in all stages of argumentative

discourse and manifests itself simultaneously

in the choices that are made from

the topical potential available at a particular

stage, in adaptation to audience demand, and

in the use of specifi c presentational devices.

Strategic maneuvering derails when in the specifi c context in which the

discourse takes place a rule for critical discussion has been violated, so that

a fallacy has been committed. Van Eemeren makes clear that extending the

pragma-dialectical approach to argumentation by taking account of strategic

maneuvering leads to a richer and more precise method for analyzing

and evaluating argumentative discourse.

Studies in Political Humour

In between political critique and public entertainment

Edited by Villy Tsakona and Diana Elena Popa

Democritus University of Thrace, Greece /

Dunarea de Jos University of Galati, Romania

If politics is a serious matter and humour

a funny one, this volume investigates how

and why the boundaries between the two are

blurred: politics can be represented in a humorous

manner and humour can have a serious

intent. Political humour conveys criticism

against the political status quo and/or recycles

and reinforces dominant views on politics. The

data analysed comes from European states with

diff erent sociopolitical histories and traditions

and the methodologies adopted originate in

diff erent fi elds (discourse analysis, folklore and

cultural studies, media studies, sociolinguistics,

sociology, theatre semiotics). The fi rst part of the volume is dedicated

to politicians’ humour as a means of public positioning, deliberation, and

eventually attack against political adversaries, while the second one involves

political satire as realised in diff erent genres: animation, impersonation,

and cartoons. Last but not least, the third part shows how political

humour can be manipulated in public debates or become an integral part

of postmodern art.

Style-Shifting in Public

New perspectives on stylistic variation

Stylistic Use of Phraseological Units in Discourse

Anita Naciscione

This interdisciplinary study presents the

cutting-edge state of theoretical and applied

research in the fascinating fi eld of phraseology.

The author elaborates key terminology

and theoretical concepts of phraseology, while

challenging some prevailing assumptions.

Exploration of phraseological meaning across

sentence boundaries is supported by ample

textual illustrations of stylistic use ranging

from Old English to Modern English. The book

contains innovative research in the discourselevel

features of phraseological units from

a cognitive perspective, along with creative

use of phraseological metaphor, metonymy and allusion, multimodal

discourse included. The author argues for applied stylistics as a distinct

area and the need to raise stylistic awareness among teachers and learners,

translators, lexicographers and advertisers. The book off ers an extensive

glossary of key terms and a comprehensive bibliography.

Stylistic Use of Phraseological Units in Discourse is a skilfully revised and

extensively expanded new edition of the author’s previously published

‘Phraseological Units in Discourse: Towards Applied Stylistics’ (2001).

Edited by Juan Manuel Hernández-Campoy and Juan Antonio Cutillas-Espinosa

University of Murcia

Language acts are acts of identity, and linguistic variation refl ects the multifaceted construction of verbal

alternatives for transmitting social meaning, where style-shifting represents our ability to take up diff erent

social positions due to its potential for linguistic performance, rhetorical stance-taking and identity

projection.

Traditional variationist conceptualizations of style-shifting as a primarily responsive phenomenon seem

unable to account for all stylistic choices. In contrast, more recent formulations see stylistic variation as

initiative, creative and strategic in personal and interpersonal identity construction and projection, making

a signifi cant contribution to our understanding of this aspect of sociolinguistic variation.

In this volume social constructivist approaches to style-shifting are further developed by bringing

together research which suggests that people make stylistic choices aimed at conveying (and achieving) a

particular social categorization, sociolinguistic meaning, and/or to project a specifi c positioning in society.

Therefore, there is a need, we collectively argue, to adopt permeable and fl exible multidimensional, multidisciplinary

and interdisciplinary approaches to speaker agency that take into consideration not only

reactive but also proactive motivations for stylistic variation, and where individuals – rather than groups

– and their strategies are the main focus when examining style-shifting in public.

This book will be of interest to advanced students and academics in the areas of sociolinguistics, dialectology,

social psychology, anthropology and sociology.

Subordination in Conversation

A cross-linguistic perspective

Edited by Ritva Laury and Ryoko Suzuki

University of Helsinki / Keio University

The articles in this volume examine the notion

of clausal subordination based on English,

Estonian, Finnish, French, German and Japanese

conversational data. Some of the articles

approach ‘subordination’ in terms of social action,

taking into account what participants are

doing with their talk, considering topics such

as the use of clauses as projector phrases and as

devices for organizing the participant structure

of the conversation. Other articles focus on the

emergence of clause combinations diachronically

and synchronically, taking on topics such

as the grammaticalization of clauses and conjunctions

into discourse markers, and the continuum nature of syntactic

subordination. In all of the articles, linguistic forms are considered to be

emergent from recurrent practices engaged in by participants in conversation.

The contributions critically examine central syntactic notions in

interclausal relations and their relevance to the description of clause combining

in conversational language, to the structure of conversation, and to

the interactional functions of language.

Telecinematic Discourse

Approaches to the language of fi lms and television series

Edited by Roberta Piazza, Monika Bednarek and Fabio Rossi

University of Sussex / University of Sydney / University of Messina

This cutting-edge collection of articles provides

the fi rst organised refl ection on the language

of fi lms and television series across British,

American and Italian cultures. The volume

suggests new directions for research and applications,

and off ers a variety of methodologies

and perspectives on the complexities of

“telecinematic” discourse – a hitherto virtually

unexplored area of investigation in linguistics.

The papers share a common vision of the big

and small screen: the belief that the discourses

of fi lm and television off er a re-presentation of

our world. As such, telecinematic texts reorganise and recreate language

(together with time and space) in their own way and with respect to

specifi c socio-cultural conventions and media logic. The volume provides

a multifaceted, yet coherent insight into the diegetic – as it revolves around

narrative – as opposed to mimetic – as referring to other non-narrative and

non-fi ctional genres – discourses of fi ctional media. The collection will

be of interest to researchers, tutors and students in pragmatics, stylistics,

discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, communication studies and related

fi elds.

Textual Choices in Discourse

A view from cognitive linguistics

Edited by Barbara Dancygier, José Sanders

and Lieven Vandelanotte

University of British Columbia / Radboud University Nijmegen /

University of Namur & University of Leuven

In recent years, research in cognitive linguistics

has expanded its interests to cover a variety of

texts – spoken, written, or multimodal. Analytical

tools such as conceptual metaphor, frame

semantics, mental spaces and grammatical

constructions have been productively applied

in various discourse contexts. In this volume,

originally published as a special issue of English

Text Construction 3:2 (2010), the contributors, a

mix of established and emerging authors in

the fi eld, analyse broadcast and print journalism,

argumentative scientifi c discourse, radio

lectures on music, and the main literary genres

(the poetry of Szymborska and bpNichol, the drama of Shakespeare, the

modernist prose of Virginia Woolf and recent fi ction by John Banville).

Collectively the fi ndings suggest a need to broaden and refi ne the cognitive

linguistic repertoire, while also uncovering new ways to interpret

textual data. The book will appeal to researchers and graduate students

with interests in cognitive poetics and linguistics, stylistics, pragmatics

and construction grammar.

Transcribing Talk and Interaction

Issues in the representation of communication data

Christopher Joseph Jenks

City University Hong Kong

Interest in transcript-based research has grown

signifi cantly in recent years. Alongside this

growth has been an increase in awareness of

the empirical utility of naturalistic research on

language use in interaction. However, a quick

scan of the literature reveals that very few

transcription books have been published in the

past three decades. This is an astonishing fact

given that there are perhaps hundreds of books

published on spoken discourse analysis. This

book aims to narrow this gap by providing an

introduction to the theories and practices related

to transcribing communication data. The

book is intended for students with little to no knowledge of transcription

work and/or instructors responsible for teaching introductory courses on

transcript-based research. Readers who are learning or teaching discourse/

conversation analysis or similar analytic methods of investigation will fi nd

this book particularly helpful.

Christopher Jenks has many years of experience teaching transcription

work and analysis of communication data to postgraduate students and

researchers. In addition to running workshops and giving presentations

on similar topics at universities around the world, he has published

widely in top international journals and has numerous other forthcoming

publications.

Understanding Historical (Im)Politeness

Relational linguistic practice over time and across cultures

Edited by Marcel Bax and Dániel Z. Kádár

University of Groningen / University of Huddersfi eld

Exploring a largely uncharted territory of cultural history and linguistic ethnography, Understanding

Historical (Im)Politeness off ers in-depth analyses and perceptive interpretations of the conveyance of

social-relational meaning in times (long) past and across historical cultures.

A collection of essays from the pens of authoritative historical (pragma)linguistics researchers, the volume

examines the forms and functions of historical (im)politeness, varying from single utterances and act

sequences to fully-fl edged (im)polite speech encounters and genres, with a focus on their period- and

culture-bound appraisal. What is more, the book sheds light on what is still very dimly seen: diachronic

trends in ‘relational work’ and the cultural-societal factors behind patterns of sociopragmatic change.

The volume reviews theoretical concepts, methods and analytical approaches to improve our present-day

understanding of the historical understanding of relational practices of the distant as well as the more recent

past. Since it includes newly established themes and positions and breaks new ground, this collection

furthers considerably the fi eld of historical (im)politeness research.

This volume was originally published as a special issue of Journal of Historical Pragmatics 12:1/2 (2011).

Conversational Narrative

Storytelling in everyday talk

Neal R. Norrick

Saarland University

This book investigates the forms and functions of

storytelling in everyday conversation. It develops

a rhetoric of everyday storytelling through an

integrated approach to both the internal structure

and the contextual integration of narrative

passages. It aims at a more complete picture of

oral narrative through analysis of a wider range

of natural data, including personal anecdotes told for humor, put-down

stories told for self-aggrandizement, family stories retold to ratify membership

and so on, as well as marginal stories and narrative-like passages

to delineate the boundaries of conversational storytelling and to test the

analytical techniques proposed.

Using transcriptions of stories from everyday talk, Norrick explores

disfl uencies, formulaicity and repetition as teller strategies and listener

cues alongside global phenomena such as retelling and narrative macrostructures.

He also extends his analysis to narrative jokes from conversation

and to narrative passages in drama, namely Shakespeare’s “Romeo &

Juliet” and Beckett’s “Endgame”.

Discourse and Power

in a Multilingual World

Adrian Blackledge

University of Birmingham

In Discourse and Power in a Multilingual World the

discourse of politicians and policy-makers in

Britain links languages other than English, and

therefore speakers of these languages, with civil

disorder and threats to democracy, citizenship

and nationhood. These powerful arguments

travel along ‘chains of discourse’ until they gain

the legitimacy of the state, and are inscribed in law. The particular focus of

this volume is on discourse linking ‘race riots’ in England in 2001 with the

Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, which extended legislation to

Adrian Blackledge develops a theoretical and methodological framework

which draws on critical discourse analysis to reveal the linguistic character

of social and cultural processes and structures; on Bakhtin’s notion of the

dialogic nature of discourse to demonstrate how voices progressively gain

authority; and on Bourdieu’s model of symbolic domination to illuminate

the way in which linguistic-minority speakers may be complicit in the

misrecognition, or valorisation, of the dominant language.

Discourse, of Course

An overview of research in discourse studies

Edited by Jan Renkema

University of Tilburg

Discourse, of Course comes after Jan Renkema’s

Introduction to Discourse Studies (2004) for undergraduates.

The new book is a collection of twenty

short papers. It is a capita selecta course and meant

for graduate programs. The aim of this book is

threefold:

• to present material for advanced courses in discourse studies;

• to unfold a stimulating display of research projects to future PhD students;

• to give an overview of new developments after the 2004 Introduction to

Discourse Studies.

This publication fulfi lls both the teacher’s need for a state-of-the-art

overview of the main topics in discourse, and the student’s need to acquire

standards for developing research plans in theses and dissertations. It

gives a combination of approaches from very diff erent schools in discourse

studies, ranging from argumentation theory to genre theory, from the

study of multimodal metaphors to cognitive approaches to coherence

analysis. This book is not only meant to serve as a textbook, but also as a

reference book for researchers who want an update for various main topics

in the fi eld.

Discourse, War and Terrorism

Edited by Adam Hodges and Chad Nilep

University of Colorado

Discourse since September 11, 2001 has constrained

and shaped public discussion and

debate surrounding terrorism worldwide. Social

actors in the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle

East and elsewhere employ the language of the

“war on terror” to explain, react to, justify and

understand a broad range of political, economic

and social phenomena. Discourse, War and Terrorism

explores the discursive production of identities, the shaping of ideologies,

and the formation of collective understandings in response to 9/11 in the

United States and around the world. At issue are how enemies are defi ned

and identifi ed, how political leaders and citizens react, and how members

of societies understand their position in the world in relation to terrorism.

Contributors to this volume represent diverse sub-fi elds involved in

the critical study of language, including perspectives from sociocultural

linguistics, communication, media, cultural and political studies.

Electronic Discourse

in Language Learning

and Language Teaching

Edited by Lee B. Abraham

and Lawrence Williams

Villanova University / University of North Texas

New technologies are constantly transforming

traditional notions of language use and literacy

in online communication environments. While

previous research has provided a foundation for

understanding the use of new technologies in

instructed second language environments, few studies have investigated

new literacies and electronic discourse beyond the classroom setting. This

volume seeks to address this gap by providing corpus-based and empirical

studies of electronic discourse analyzing social and linguistic variation

as well as communicative practices in chat, discussion forums, blogs, and

podcasts. Several chapters also examine the assessment and integration of

new literacies. This volume will serve as a valuable resource for researchers,

teachers, and students interested in exploring electronic discourse and

new literacies in language learning and teaching.

Gesturecraft

The manu-facture of meaning

Jürgen Streeck

The University of Texas, Austin

The craft of gesture is part of the practical equipment

with which we inhabit and understand the

world together. Drawing on micro-ethnographic

research in diverse interaction settings, this

book explores the communicative ecologies in

which hand-gestures appear: illuminating the

world around us, depicting it, making sense of

it, and symbolizing the interaction process itself.

Gesture is analyzed as embodied communicative action grounded in the

hands’ practical and cognitive engagments with material worlds. The

book responds to the quest for the role of the human body in cognition

and interaction with an analytic perspective informed by phenomenology,

conversation analysis, context analysis, praxeology, and cognitive science.

Many of the cross-linguistic video-data of everyday interaction investigated

in its chapters are available on-line.

Humor in Interaction

Edited by Neal R. Norrick

and Delia Chiaro

Saarland University /

Alma mater studiorum Università di Bologna

This is the fi rst edited volume dedicated specifi -

cally to humor in interaction. It is a rich collection

of essays by an international array of scholars

representing various theoretical perspectives,

but all concerned with interactional aspects of

humor. The contributors are scholars active both

in the interdisciplinary area of humor studies and in adjacent disciplines

such as linguistic pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, psycholinguistics,

gender and translation studies. The volume eff ectively off ers

an overview of the range of phenomena falling in the broad category of

‘conversational humor’, and convincingly argues for the many diff erent

functions humor can fulfi ll, bypassing simplistic humor theories reducing

humor to one function. All the articles draw on empirical material from

diff erent countries and cultures, comprising conversations among friends

and family, talk in workplace situations, humor in educational settings,

and experimental approaches to humor in interaction. The book is sure to

become an important reference and source of inspiration for scholars in

the various subfi elds of humor studies, pragmatics and (socio-)linguistics.

Impoliteness in Interaction

Derek Bousfi eld

University of Central Lancashire, UK

This study concerns the nature of impoliteness

in face-to-face spoken interaction. For more than

three decades many pragmatic and sociolinguistic

studies of interaction have considered politeness

to be one central explanatory concept governing

and underpinning face-to-face interaction. Politeness’

“evil twin” impoliteness has been largely

neglected until only very recently. This book, the

fi rst of its kind on the subject, considers the role that impoliteness has

to play by drawing extracts from a range of discourse types (car parking

disputes, army and police training, police-public interactions and kitchen

discourse). The study considers the triggering of impoliteness; explores

the dynamic progression of impolite exchanges, and examines the way

in which such exchanges come to some form of resolution. ‘Face’ and the

linguistic sophistication and manipulation of discoursally expected norms

to cause, or defl ect impoliteness is also explored, as is the dynamic and

sometimes hotly contested nature of an individual’s socio-discoursal role.

Introduction to Discourse Studies

Jan Renkema

University of Tilburg

Introduction to Discourse Studies follows on

Jan Renkema’s successful Discourse Studies: An Introductory

Textbook (1993), published in four languages.

This new book deals with even more key concepts

in discourse studies and approaches major issues in

this fi eld from the Anglo-American and European

as well as the Australian traditions. It provides a

‘scientifi c toolkit’ for future courses on discourse

studies and serves as a stepping stone to the independent study of professional

literature.

Introduction to Discourse Studies is the result of more than twenty-fi ve

years of experience gained in doing research and teaching students, professionals

and academics at various universities. The book is organized in

fi fteen comprehensive chapters, each subdivided in modular sections that

can be studied separately. It includes

• 400 references, from the most-cited contemporary publications to infl uential

classic works;

• 500 index entries covering frequently used concepts in the fi eld;

• more than 100 thought-provoking questions, all elaborately answered,

which are ideal for teacher-supported self-education;

• nearly 100 assignments that provide ample material for teachers to focus

on specifi c topics of their own preference in their lectures.

(Mis)Representing Islam

The racism and rhetoric of British

broadsheet newspapers

John Richardson

University of Sheffi eld

(Mis)Representing Islam explores and illustrates how

élite broadsheet newspapers are implicated in the

production and reproduction of anti-Muslim racism.

The book approaches journalistic discourse as

the inseparable combination of ‘social practices’,

‘discursive practices’ and the ‘texts’ themselves

from a perspective which fuses Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) with

Edward Said’s critique of Orientalism. This framework enables Richardson

to (re)contextualise élite journalism within its professional, political,

economic, social and historic settings and present a critical and precise

examination of not only the prevalence but also the form and potential

eff ects of anti-Muslim racism. The book analyses the centrality of van Dijk’s

ideological square and the signifi cance and utility of stereotypical topoi in

representing Islam and Muslims, focusing in particular on the reporting of

Turkey, Pakistan, Iran, Israel/Palestine, Algeria, Iraq and Britain.

This timely book should interest researchers and students of racism,

Islam, Journalism and Communication studies, Rhetoric, and (Critical)

Discourse Analysis.

A New Agenda

in (Critical) Discourse Analysis

Theory, methodology and

interdisciplinarity

Edited by Ruth Wodak and Paul Chilton

Lancaster University / University of East Anglia

Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) has established

itself over the past two decades as an area of

academic activity in which scholars and students

from many diff erent disciplines are involved. It

is a fi eld that draws on social theory and aspects

of linguistics in order to understand and challenge the discourses of our

day. It is time for A New Agenda in the fi eld. The present book is essential

for anyone working broadly in the fi eld of discourse analysis in the social

sciences. The book includes often critical re-assessments of CDA’s assumptions

and methods, while proposing new route-maps for innovation.

Practical analyses of major issues in discourse analysis are part of this

agenda-setting volume.

Pragmaticizing Understanding

Studies for Jef Verschueren

Edited by Michael Meeuwis

and Jan-Ola Östman

Ghent University / University of Helsinki

The ideas that mark modern-day pragmatics are

old, but did not start to get more systematically

developed until the 1960s and 1970s. Still, the

very recognition of pragmatics as a self-standing

academic discipline is a product of the 1980s,

not least made possible by the establishment of

the International Pragmatics Association. One scholar in particular has

devoted his life both to IPrA and to the discipline.

This volume pays homage to Jef Verschueren on the occasion of his 60th

birthday. It celebrates him for his long-standing dedication as Secretary

General of IPrA and for his scholarly contributions to the fi eld. We owe

to Jef Verschueren the insight that the processes through which language

users (do or do not) achieve understanding among each other in communication

can only be fully comprehended if approached from a pragmatic

perspective, i.e. if understanding is pragmaticized.

The chapters in this book are written by scholars who, like Jef Verschueren,

have played a key role in the genesis and development of the fi eld, and

who still actively contribute to its advancement today. Each author looks

back, evaluates the present, and takes on new challenges.

Television Dialogue

The sitcom Friends vs. natural

conversation

Paulo Quaglio

State University of New York at Cortland

This book explores a virtually untapped, yet

fascinating research area: television dialogue. It

reports on a study comparing the language of

the American situation comedy Friends to natural

conversation. Transcripts of the television show

and the American English conversation portion of

the Longman Grammar Corpus provide the data for this corpus-based investigation,

which combines Douglas Biber’s multidimensional methodology

with a frequency-based analysis of close to 100 linguistic features. As a

natural off shoot of the research design, this study off ers a comprehensive

description of the most common linguistic features characterizing natural

conversation. Illustrated with numerous dialogue extracts from Friends

and conversation, topics such as vague, emotional, and informal language

are discussed. This book will be an important resource not only for

researchers and students specializing in discourse analysis, register variation,

and corpus linguistics, but also anyone interested in conversational

language and television dialogue.

Transcribing Talk and Interaction

Issues in the representation of

communication data

Christopher Joseph Jenks

City University Hong Kong

Interest in transcript-based research has grown

signifi cantly in recent years. Alongside this

growth has been an increase in awareness of

the empirical utility of naturalistic research on

language use in interaction. However, a quick

scan of the literature reveals that very few transcription

books have been published in the past three decades. This is an

astonishing fact given that there are perhaps hundreds of books published

on spoken discourse analysis. This book aims to narrow this gap by providing

an introduction to the theories and practices related to transcribing

communication data. The book is intended for students with little to no

knowledge of transcription work and/or instructors responsible for teaching

introductory courses on transcript-based research. Readers who are

learning or teaching discourse/conversation analysis or similar analytic

methods of investigation will fi nd this book particularly helpful.

Christopher Jenks has many years of experience teaching transcription

work and analysis of communication data to postgraduate students and

researchers. In addition to running workshops and giving presentations

on similar topics at universities around the world, he has published

widely in top international journals and has numerous other forthcoming

publications.

Washing the Brain –

Metaphor and Hidden Ideology

Andrew Goatly

Lingnan University

Contemporary metaphor theory has recently

begun to address the relation between metaphor,

culture and ideology. In this wide-ranging

book, Andrew Goatly, using lexical data from his

database Metalude, investigates how conceptual

metaphor themes construct our thinking and

social behaviour in fi elds as diverse as architecture,

engineering, education, genetics, ecology, economics, politics,

industrial time-management, medicine, immigration, race, and sex. He

argues that metaphor themes are created not only through the universal

body but also through cultural experience, so that an apparently universal

metaphor such as event-structure as realized in English grammar is, in

fact, culturally relative, compared with e.g. the construal of ‘cause and

eff ect’ in the Algonquin language Blackfoot. Moreover, event-structure as

a model is both scientifi cally reactionary and, as the basis for technological

mega-projects, has proved environmentally harmful. Furthermore, the

ideologies of early capitalism created or exploited a selection of metaphor

themes historically traceable through Hobbes, Hume, Smith, Malthus and

Darwin. These metaphorical concepts support neo-Darwinian and neoconservative

ideologies apparent at the beginning of the 21st century, ideologies

underpinning our social and environmental crises. The conclusion

therefore recommends skepticism of metaphor’s reductionist tendencies.

A Method for Linguistic

Metaphor Identifi cation

From MIP to MIPVU

Gerard J. Steen, Aletta G. Dorst,

J. Berenike Herrmann, Anna A. Kaal,

Tina Krennmayr and Trijntje Pasma

VU University Amsterdam

This book presents a complete method for

the identifi cation of metaphor in language at

the level of word use. It is based on extensive

methodological and empirical corpus-linguistic

research in two languages, English and Dutch. The method is formulated

as an explicit manual of instructions covering one chapter, the method

being a development and refi nement of the popular MIP procedure

presented by the Pragglejaz Group in 2007. The extended version is called

MIPVU, as it was developed at VU University Amsterdam. Its application

is demonstrated in fi ve case studies addressing metaphor in English

news texts, conversations, fi ction, and academic texts, and Dutch news

texts and conversations. Two methodological chapters follow reporting a

series of successful reliability tests and a series of post hoc troubleshooting

exercises. The fi nal chapter presents a fi rst empirical analysis of the fi ndings,

and shows what this type of methodological attention can mean for

research and theory.

University of London

Studies in Chinese Language and Discourse

Executive Editor: Hongyin Tao

University of California, Los Angeles

Co-editors: K.K. Luke and Li Wei

Nanyang Technological University / University of London

The Studies in Chinese Language and Discourse book series publishes works of original research on Chinese from a linguistic,

cognitive, socio-cultural, or interactional perspective. We welcome contributions based on systematic documentation

of language structure which displays fresh data and analysis from such areas as corpus linguistics, grammaticalization,

cognitive linguistics, sociolinguistics, discourse and grammar, conversation analysis, and typological and

comparative studies. Both monographs and thematic collections of research papers will be considered.

issN: 1879-5382

The aim of the series is to publish theoretical and empirical interdisciplinary

research on the eff ective use of metaphor in language and other

modalities (including, for instance, visuals) for general or specifi c cognitive

and communicative purposes. The aim of the series is to off er both fundamental

and applied contributions to the state of the art. The series also

invites proposals for inter-cultural and cross-cultural studies of metaphor

in language, cognition, and communication. Room will be given as well to

publications on related phenomena, such as analogy, metonymy, irony, and

humor, as long as they are approached from a comparable perspective.The

scope of the series comprises approaches from the humanities and the social

and cognitive sciences, including philosophy, cultural studies, linguistics,

cognitive science, communication science, media studies, and discourse

analysis. More focused attention may be paid to the role of metaphor in the

domains of religion, literature and the arts, the media, politics, organization

and management, law, economics, health, education, and science.

issN: 2210-4836

Associate Editors: Delia Chiaro, Marta Dynel, Giselinde Kuipers and Elda Weizman

Università di Bologna / University of Lódz / University of Amsterdam / Bar-Ilan University

The series aims to publish high-quality research on a broad range of topics

in humor studies, including irony and laughter. Topics include, but

are not limited to, pragmatics, the sociology of humor, the psychology of

humor, translation studies, literary studies, and studies of visual humor

combining word and image. Since humor research encompasses a variety

of disciplines, we welcome theoretical and methodological approaches

from any of these disciplines, thereby including the humanities, as well

as the social and cognitive sciences. Examples include, among others,

philosophy, anthropology, cultural studies, linguistics, media and communication

studies, psychology, neuroscience, and computer science.

Mutual intelligibility of studies across these various domains is a goal to

be pursued within the series.

Argumentation in Context

Edited by Frans H. van Eemeren and Bart Garssen

University of Amsterdam

This book series highlights the variety of argumentative practices that have become established in modern society

by focusing on the study of context-dependent characteristics of argumentative discourse that vary according to the

demands of the more or less institutionalized communicative activity type in which the discourse takes place. Examples

of such activity types are parliamentary debates and political interviews, medical consultations and health brochures,

legal annotations and judicial sentences, editorials and advertorials in newspapers, and scholarly reviews and essays.

disciplines relevant to the advancement of knowledge in the fi eld of interaction studies. The book series accompanies

the journal Interaction Studies: Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artifi cial Systems.

The book series allows the presentation of research in the forms of monographs (that may be based on PhD thesis material)

or edited collections of peer-reviewed material (that may be based on conferences relevant to the fi eld), in English.

The series welcomes contributions that analyze social behaviour in humans and other animals, including the evolution

of interaction and communication, as well as research into the design and synthesis of robotic, software, virtual

and other artifi cial systems, including applications such as exploiting human-machine interactions for educational

or therapeutic purposes. Fields of interest include but are not limited to: evolutionary biology, artifi cial intelligence,

artifi cial life, robotics, human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction, psychology, cognitive neuroscience,

computational neuroscience, cognitive modeling, ethology, social and biological anthropology, palaeontology, animal

behaviour, and linguistics.

Constructional Approaches to Language

Edited by Jan-Ola Östman and Kyoko Ohara

Department of Finnish, Finno-Ugrian and Scandinavian Studies, University of Helsinki / Keio University, Japan

The series brings together research conducted within diff erent constructional models and makes them available to

scholars and students working in this and other, related fi elds.

The topics range from descriptions of grammatical phenomena in diff erent languages to theoretical issues concerning

language acquisition, language change, and language use. The foundation of constructional research is provided by the

model known as Construction Grammar (including Frame Semantics). The book series publishes studies in which this

model is developed in new directions and extended through alternative approaches. Such approaches include cognitive

linguistics, conceptual semantics, interaction and discourse, as well as typologically motivated alternatives, with

implications both for constructional theories and for their applications in related fi elds such as communication studies,

computational linguistics, AI, neurology, psychology, sociology, and anthropology.

This peer reviewed series is committed to innovative research and will include monographs, thematic collections of

articles, and introductory textbooks.

Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture

General Editors: Ruth Wodak and Greg Myers

University of Lancaster

The editors invite contributions that investigate political, social and cultural processes from a linguistic/discourse-analytic

point of view. The aim is to publish monographs and edited volumes which combine language-based approaches

with disciplines concerned essentially with human interaction — disciplines such as political science, international

relations, social psychology, social anthropology, sociology,

economics, and gender studies.

Pragmatics & Beyond New Series

Edited by Anita Fetzer

University of Würzburg

Pragmatics & Beyond New Series is a continuation of Pragmatics & Beyond and its Companion Series. The series

provides a forum for scholars in any area of Pragmatics. It aims at representing the fi eld in its diversity covering

diff erent topics and diff erent linguistic and socio-cultural contexts, including various theoretical and methodological

perspectives.

This peer-reviewed series off ers a selection of high quality work covering the full richness of Pragmatics as an

interdisciplinary fi eld within language sciences. It is committed to innovative research and includes monographs

and thematic collections of articles. We welcome submissions with a focus on language use without predefi ned

boundaries for the fi eld and with an explicit interest in work that interacts with other fi elds such as sociology,

anthropology, semantics, historical linguistics, and so on.

Dialogue Studies

Edited by Edda Weigand

University of Münster

34 pRagmatics, discoURsE & dialogUE stUdiEs 2012

book series

The series “Dialogue Studies” takes the notion of dialogicity as central; it starts from the classical view of ‘language

as dialogically directed’ and encompasses every type of language use, workaday, institutional and literary.

By covering the whole range of language use, the growing fi eld of dialogue studies comes close to pragmatics and

studies in discourse or conversation. The concept of dialogicity, however, provides a clear methodological profi le

and allows us to structure the pragmatic ‘perspective’ and the ‘pan-discipline’ of discourse. It focuses on methodological

premises such as: action and reaction; the integration of the human abilities of speaking, thinking and

perceiving; dialogic interaction as the intentional eff ort to pursue defi nable goals and interests.

The series aims to cross disciplinary boundaries and considers a genuinely interdisciplinary approach necessary

for addressing the complex phenomenon of dialogic language use. All disciplines that deal with the human ability

of dialogic interaction from diff erent perspectives, in everyday interaction as well as in institutional contexts,

are addressed: linguistics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, rhetoric, anthropology, applied linguistics, culture

sciences, the media sciences, economics, jurisprudence.

The current state of research in science in general is characterized by a turning point from closed rule-governed

models to open models of probability. In this sense, Dialogue Studies aims to support new ways of theorizing and

opens up innovative cross-disciplinary advances in the complex. The series will be of interest to existing theoretical

approaches to competence as well as empirical approaches to performance, bridging the gap between competence

and performance by focusing on human beings and their competence-in-performance.

This peer reviewed series will include monographs, thematic collections of articles, and introductory textbooks in

the relevant areas.

Studies in Language and Social Interaction

Edited by Sandra A. Thompson and Elizabeth Couper-Kuhlen

University of California, Santa Barbara / University of Helsinki

Studies in Language and Social Interaction is a series which continues the tradition of Studies in Discourse and Grammar, but with

a new focus. It aims to provide a forum for research on grammar, understood broadly, in its natural home environment,

spoken interaction. The assumption underlying the series is that the study of language as it is actually used in social interaction

provides the foundation for understanding how the patterns and regularities we think of as grammar emerge from

everyday communicative needs. The editors welcome language-related research from a range of diff erent methodological

traditions, including conversation analysis, interactional linguistics, and discourse-functional linguistics.

Journal of Argumentation

in Context

Editors: Frans H. van Eemeren

and Bart Garssen

University of Amsterdam

The Journal of Argumentation in Context aims to

publish high-quality papers about the role of

argumentation in the various kinds of argumentative

practices that have come into being in

social life. These practices include, for instance,

political, legal, medical, fi nancial, commercial,

academic, educational, problem-solving, and

interpersonal communication. In all cases certain aspects of such practices

will be analyzed from the perspective of argumentation theory with a

view of gaining a better understanding of certain vital characteristics of

these practices. This means that the journal has an empirical orientation

and concentrates on real-life argumentation but is at the same time out to

publish only papers that are informed by relevant insights from argumentation

theory. These papers may also report on case studies concerning specifi

c argumentative speech events.The journal aims to attract authors from

various kinds of disciplinary background who are interested in studying

argumentative practices in their fi elds of interest. In all cases, in papers

published in the journal an interesting and revealing connection should

be established between certain insights from argumentation theory and

some particular context of argumentative practice.

Constructions and Frames

Editors: Mirjam Fried

and Kiki Nikiforidou

Charles University, Prague / University of Athens

Constructions and Frames is an international

peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum

for construction-based approaches to language

analysis. Constructional models emphasize the

role of constructions, as conventional pairings of

meaning and form, in stating language-specifi c

and cross-linguistic generalizations and in accounting

equally for regular and semi-regular

patterns. Frame Semantics, which has become a semantic complement of

some constructional approaches, elaborates the analysis of form-meaning

relationships by focusing on lexical semantic issues that are relevant to

grammatical structure. The preoccupation of constructional theories

with meaning allows for natural integration of grammatical inquiry with

semantic, pragmatic, and discourse research; often coupled with corpus

evidence, this orientation also enriches current perspectives on language

acquisition, language change, and language use.

Constructions and Frames publishes articles which range from descriptions

of grammatical phenomena in diff erent languages to constructionallyoriented

work in cognitive linguistics, grammaticalization theory,

typology, conversation analysis and interactional linguistics, poetics, and

sociolinguistics. Articles that explore applications to or implications for

related fi elds, such as communication studies, computational linguistics,

lexicography, psychology, and anthropology are also invited.

The aim of the journal is to promote innovative research that extends constructional

approaches in new directions and along interdisciplinary paths.

Functions of Language is an international journal of linguistics which explores

the functionalist perspective on the organisation and use of natural

language. It publishes articles and reviews books from the full spectrum of

functionalist linguistics, seeking to bring out the fundamental unity behind

the various schools of thought, while stimulating discussion among

functionalists. It encourages the interplay of theory and description, and

provides space for the detailed analysis, qualitative or quantitative, of

linguistic data from a broad range of languages. Its scope is broad, covering

such matters as prosodic phenomena in phonology, the clause in its

communicative context, and regularities of pragmatics, conversation and

discourse, as well as the interaction between the various levels of analysis.

The overall purpose is to contribute to our understanding of how the use

of languages in speech and writing has impacted, and continues to impact,

upon the structure of those languages.

Functions of Language promotes the constructive interaction between

linguistics and such neighbouring disciplines as sociology, cultural studies,

psychology, ethology, communication studies, translation theory and

educational linguistics.

Interaction Studies

Social Behaviour and Communication

in Biological and Artifi cial Systems

Editors: Kerstin Dautenhahn

and Angelo Cangelosi

University of Hertfordshire / University of Plymouth

This international, peer-reviewed journal aims to

advance knowledge in the growing and strongly

interdisciplinary area of Interaction Studies in

biological and artifi cial systems. Understanding

social behaviour and communication in biological

and artifi cial systems requires knowledge of evolutionary,

developmental and neurobiological aspects of social behaviour

and communication; the embodied nature of interactions; origins and

characteristics of social and narrative intelligence; perception, action and

communication in the context of dynamic and social environments; social

learning, adaptation and imitation; social behaviour in human-machine

interactions; the nature of empathic understanding, behaviour and

intention reading; minimal requirements and systems exhibiting social

behaviour; the role of cultural factors in shaping social behaviour and

communication in biological or artifi cial societies.

The journal welcomes contributions that analyze social behaviour in humans

and other animals as well as research into the design and synthesis of

robotic, software, virtual and other artifi cial systems, including applications

such as exploiting human-machine interactions for educational or

therapeutic purposes. Fields of interest comprise evolutionary biology,

artifi cial intelligence, artifi cial life, robotics, psychology, cognitive neuroscience,

computational neuroscience, cognitive modeling, ethology, social

and biological anthropology, palaeontology, animal behaviour, linguistics.

Interaction Studies publishes research articles, research reports, and book

reviews.

Interaction Studies is a successor of Evolution of Communication. While IS

signifi cantly broadens the original aims and scope of EoC, we clearly continue

to encourage researchers studying the origins of human language

and the evolutionary continuum of communication in general to submit

high quality manuscripts to Interaction Studies.

Journal of Historical Pragmatics

Editors: Andreas H. Jucker

and Irma Taavitsainen

University of Zurich / University of Helsinki

The Journal of Historical Pragmatics provides an

interdisciplinary forum for theoretical, empirical

and methodological work at the intersection of

pragmatics and historical linguistics. The editorial

focus is on socio-historical and pragmatic

aspects of historical texts in their sociocultural

context of communication (e.g. conversational

principles, politeness strategies, or speech acts)

and on diachronic pragmatics as seen in linguistic processes such as grammaticalization

or discoursization.

Contributions draw on data from literary or non-literary sources and from

any language. In addition to contributions with a strictly pragmatic or

discourse analytical perspective, it also includes contributions with a more

sociolinguistic or semantic approach. However, the focus of the articles is

always on the communicative use of language.

The Journal of Historical Pragmatics contains original articles, research

reports and book reviews. Occasionally focus-on issues are published on

specifi c topics within the editorial scope of the journal.

The Journal of Historical Pragmatics invites relevant contributions. Authors

are advised to consult the Guidelines. Abstracts of contributions may be

sent to both editors, preferably via email.

Journal of Language and Politics

Editors: Ruth Wodak and Paul Chilton

University of Lancaster

Associate Editor: Michał Krzy ˙ zanowski

Adam Mickiewicz University

Book Review Editor: Christopher Hart

Northumbria University

The Journal of Language and Politics (JLP) represents

a forum for analysing and discussing the

various dimensions in the interplay of language

and politics. The basic assumption is that the

language of politics cannot be separated from the politics of language. The notion

of ’Political Discourse’ does not remain limited to the ’institutional’

fi eld of politics (e.g. parliamentary discourse, election campaigns, party

programmes, speeches, etc.) but opens to all linguistic manifestations that

may be considered to be political, provided that it is convincingly argued

what makes them ’political’. In order to illuminate new and old forms of

political discourses inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives and elaborated

linguistic methodologies have to complement each other.

Articles should bring together sociological concepts, political theories, and

historical analysis. Methodologies can be qualitative or quantitative and

must be well grounded in linguistics or other relevant disciplines. They

may focus on diff erent dimensions (pragmatics, semantics, social cognition,

semiotics) of political discourse. Since political discourses overlap

with other discourses, e.g. economic and scientifi c discourses, perspectives

of interdiscursivity and intertextuality are considered to be important.

Articles based on ethnographic studies will be particularly welcome.

The Journal of Language and Politics welcomes review papers of any research

monograph or edited volume which takes a discourse-analytical approach

to the study of language and politics, as broadly conceived above.

If you are interested in reviewing any recent, relevant text please email

Christopher.hart@northumbria.ac.uk and we can arrange for a copy to be

sent to you.

The Journal of Language and Politics is associated with the book series Discourse

Approaches to Politics, Society, and Culture, edited by Ruth Wodak and

Greg Myers.

Review Editor: Marion Grein

University of Mainz

In our post-Cartesian times human abilities are

regarded as integrated and interacting abilities.

Speaking, thinking, perceiving, having emotions

need to be studied in interaction. Integration and interaction take place

in dialogue. Scholars are called upon to go beyond reductive methods of

abstraction and division and to take up the challenge of coming to terms

with the complex whole. The conclusions drawn from reasoning about

human behaviour in the humanities and social sciences have fi nally been

proven by experiments in the natural sciences, especially neurology and

sociobiology. What happens in the black box, can now, at least in part, be

made visible.

The journal intends to be an explicitly interdisciplinary journal reaching

out to any discipline dealing with human abilities on the basis of

consilience or the unity of knowledge. It is the challenge of post-Cartesian

science to tackle the issue of how body, mind and language are interconnected

and dialogically put to action. The journal invites papers which

deal with ‘language and dialogue’ as an integrated whole in diff erent

languages and cultures and in diff erent areas: everyday, institutional and

literary, in theory and in practice, in business, in court, in the media, in

Languages in Contrast

International Journal for Contrastive

Linguistics

Editors: Silvia Bernardini

and Hilde Hasselgård

University of Bologna at Forlì, Italy /

University of Oslo, Norway

Review Editor: Stella Neumann

RWTH Aachen University, Germany

Languages in Contrast aims to publish contrastive

studies of two or more languages. Any aspect of

language may be covered, including vocabulary,

phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, text and discourse,

stylistics, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics.

Languages in Contrast welcomes interdisciplinary studies, particularly those

that make links between contrastive linguistics and translation, lexicography,

computational linguistics, language teaching, literary and linguistic

computing, literary studies and cultural studies.

Languages in Contrast provides a home for contrastive linguistics. It enables

advocates of diff erent theoretical linguistic frameworks topublish in a

single publication to the benefi t of all involved in contrastive research.

Languages in Contrast provides a forum to explore the theoretical status of

the fi eld; stimulates research into a wide range of languages; and helps to

give the fi eld of contrastive linguistics a distinct identity.

Metaphor and the Social World

Editors: Lynne Cameron and Graham Low

The Open University / University of York

Associate Editor: Alice Deignan

University of Leeds

Reviews Editor:

María del Rosario Caballero Rodríguez

Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha

The journal Metaphor and the Social World aims to

provide a forum for researchers to share with

each other, and with potential research users,

work that explores aspects of metaphor and the social world. The term

“social world” signals the importance given to context (of metaphor use),

to connections (e.g. across social, cognitive and discourse dimensions of

metaphor use), and to communication (between individuals or across

social groups). The journal is not restricted to a single disciplinary or

theoretical framework but welcomes papers based in a range of theoretical

approaches to metaphor, including discourse and cognitive linguistic

approaches, provided that the theory adequately supports the empirical

work. Metaphor may be dealt with as either a matter of language or of

thought, or of both; what matters is that consideration is given to the

social and discourse contexts in which metaphor is found. Furthermore,

“metaphor” is broadly interpreted and articles are welcomed on metonymy

and other types of fi gurative language. A further aim is to encourage

the development of high-quality research methodology using metaphor as

an investigative tool, and for investigating the nature of metaphor use, for

example multi-modal discourse analytic or corpus linguistic approaches to

metaphor data. The journal publishes various types of articles, including

reports of empirical studies, key articles accompanied by short responses,

reviews and meta-analyses with commentaries. The Forum section publishes

short responses to papers or current issues.

Pragmatics & Cognition

Editor: Marcelo Dascal

Tel Aviv University

Book Review Editor:

Rodrigo Borges de Faveri

Universidade Federal do Pampa

Pragmatics & Cognition is an interdisciplinary

journal seeking to bring together such disciplines

as philosophy, linguistics, semiotics, cognitive

science, neuroscience, artifi cial intelligence,

ethology, and cognitive anthropology, among

others. The journal seeks to explore relations

of all sorts between semiotic systems as used by humans, animals and

machines, in connection with mental activities: logical and causal dependence;

condition of acquisition, development of loss; modeling, simulation

of formalization, shared or separate biological and neurological bases;

social and cultural variation; aesthetic expression; historical development;

etc. Pragmatics & Cognition’s basic assumption is that the proper understanding

of mental life and inter-personal relations requires an intensive

and thoughtful exchange of views across disciplines.

Since Vol. 13 (2005) Pragmatics & Cognition pays special attention to the

growing interest in the relationship between technological advances and

cognition a fi eld that is intimately related to the journals basic concerns.

The journal appears now three times a year in order to make room for

this fi eld. Four Special Issues devoted to selected issues in Cognition &

Technology were published so far by Pragmatics & Cognition and others will

be published henceforth. Since contributions in this area will be published

also in regular issues, authors are invited to submit relevant articles as well

as proposals for book reviews and discussion notes independently of the

announcement of Special Issues.

Pragmatics and Society puts the spotlight on societal aspects of language

use, while incorporating many other facets of society-oriented pragmatic

studies. It brings together a variety of approaches to the study of language

in context, inspired by diff erent research perspectives and drawing on

various disciplines, for instance, sociology, psychology, developmental and

cognitive science, anthropology, media research, and computer-related

social studies. It is concerned with how language use and social normativity

infl uence and shape each other, for instance, in education (the teaching

and acquisition of fi rst and second languages), in political discourse

(with its manipulative language use), in the discourse of business, and in

all kinds of discriminatory uses of language (gender- and class-based or

other). Finally, it pays special attention to the impact that technologically

mediated communication and increased immersion in technology have on

social interaction, as well as to the emancipatory potential of pragmatics.

The Interactional Organization

of Academic Talk

Offi ce hour consultations

Holger Limberg

University of Oldenburg

This book provides interesting and critical

insights into a common university practice, the

academic offi ce hour. Offi ce hours are a discursive

site for a variety of diff erent issues, ranging from

administrative matters to course-related and

study-related concerns. The study off ers both an

ethnographic account of this speech event within

the socio-cultural context of a German university

as well as a more detailed analysis of the interactional organization

of academic consultations. It draws on natural recordings of entire offi ce

hour interactions in order to show how participants’ actions at diff erent

stages of the talk organize and accomplish the consultation. The analytical

focus is set on the sequential activities teachers and students engage in as

they conduct a consultation. This includes, for instance, how participants

open an offi ce hour talk, how they establish an agenda, how they manage

advice-giving, and how they close the consultation. As such, this book

will be of practical use to students and faculty members as well as scholars

from diff erent disciplines who work in the areas of institutional talk and

talk-in-interaction.

Calling for Help

Language and social interaction in

telephone helplines

Edited by Carolyn Baker, Michael Emmison

and Alan Firth

University of Queensland / Aalborg University

Telephone helplines have become one of the most

pervasive sites of expert-lay interaction in modern

societies throughout the world. Yet surprisingly

little is known of the in situ, language-based

processes of help-seeking and help-giving behavior

that occurs within them. This collection of

original studies by both internationally renowned

and emerging scholars seeks to improve upon this state of aff airs. It does

so by off ering some of the fi rst systematic investigations of naturallyoccurring

spoken interaction in telephone helplines. Using the methods of

Conversation Analysis, each of the contributors off ers a detailed investigation

into the skills and competencies that callers and call-takers routinely

draw upon when engaging one another within a range of helplines.

Helplines in the US, the UK, Australia, Scandinavia, The Netherlands,

and Ireland, dealing with the provision of healthcare, emotional support

and counselling, technical assistance and consumer rights, tourism and

fi nance, make up the studies in the volume. Collectively and individually,

the research provides fascinating insight into an under-researched area of

modern living and demonstrates the relevance and potential of helplines

for the growing fi eld of institutional interaction.

Advice in Discourse

Edited by Holger Limberg

and Miriam A. Locher

University of Oldenburg / University of Basel

This multi-faceted collection of research papers

on Advice in Discourse focuses on advisory

practices in diff erent contexts. Data is drawn

from academic, educational and training settings,

health-related practices, and computer-mediated

communication. The languages involved are

Cantonese, English, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish

and Russian. The chapters treat professional and

institutional practices, practices that contain peer

interaction within an institutional framework,

and non-institutional peer interaction, as well as

solicited and non-solicited advice in written and spoken form. The work

reported on clearly demonstrates the complexity of the advisory activity,

which needs to be studied in its cultural framework and interactional

context. The richness and diversity of this practice is studied from diff erent

methodological angles, covering qualitative and quantitative as well

as theoretical and empirical analyses. The volume provides a comprehensive

introduction to the research fi eld, thought-provoking theoretical

discussions and extensive references for future research. It is essential for

linguists, advice-practitioners and for those who want to learn more about

the discourse of advice.

Advice Online

Advice-giving in an American Internet

health column

Miriam A. Locher

University of Berne

Advice Online presents a comprehensive study of

advice-giving in one particular American Internet

advice column, referred to as ‘Lucy Answers’. The

discursive practice investigated is part of a professional

and educational health program managed

by an American university. The study provides

insights into the linguistic realization of both

asking for and giving advice in a written form and

thus adds to the literature on advice columns as a specifi c text genre, on

advice in health care contexts, and on Internet communication. The book

off ers a comprehensive literature review of advice in health encounters

and other contexts, and uses this knowledge as a basis for comparison. Advice

Online demonstrates how qualitative and quantitative research methods

can be successfully combined to arrive at a comprehensive analysis of a

discursive practice. It provides essential information on advice-giving for

researchers, academics and students in the fi elds of (Internet) communication,

media studies, pragmatics, social psychology and counseling. Health

educators who work for advice columns or use similar forms of communication

will also benefi t from the insights gained in this study.
