Yan Huang provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the central topics in pragmatics--implicature, presupposition, speech acts, and deixis. He also includes three 'interface' chapters on pragmatics and cognition (including relevance theory), pragmatics and semantics, and pragmatics and syntax. The survey and analyses are based on a rich collection of data drawn from a wide range of the world's languages.

About the Author:


Yan Huang is Professor of Theoretical Linguistics at the University of Reading. He was a College Research Fellow in Linguistics at the University of Cambridge from 1988-1991, and a University Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Oxford from 1991-1993.

He is the author of three books: Yingyu Changyong Duanyu Bianxi (Fujian Jiaoyu 1985), The Syntax and Pragmatics of Anaphora (Cambridge University Press 1994), and Anaphora: A Cross-Linguistic Study (Oxford University Press 2000).

Review:


"This book is very thorough in its coverage of topics within the field. Mindful of its student audience, it also has extensive study questions, examples and glossaries. My overall impressions is that it is a valuable textbook to anyone in the field of pragmatics." --Linguist List


"This new publication by Professor Huang ... gives a very thorough introduction to this subdiscipling in linguistics, which is becoming increasinly interwined with psychology and neurolinguistics. ... I would therefore recommend this introductory text to any postgraduates or researchers in psycholinguistics." --The Psychologist


"As for textbooks in pragmatics, there have been some on the market (see e.g., Cummings 2005, Grundy 2000, Levinson 1983, Mey 2001, Verschueren 1999), but the present one under review stands out. ... Students of pragmatics, philosophy of language in general, Gricean pragmatics, relevance theory and anaphora in particular will find this textbook useful and valuable. While all topics are introduced in terms accessible to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, this text, authoritative and up-to-date, can serve as a valuable resource for scholars from pragmatics and neighbouring areas of inquiry who wish to keep abreast of advances in the discipline." --International Cognitive Linguistics Association Book Reviews


"[A]n excellent textbook in pragmatics. ... Huang's achievement is impressive." --Journal of Pragmatics
