The editors of this contributed volume explore the emerging theory of pragmatics, which views language learning as a process of learning about whole contexts rather than learning about rules.
Interdisciplinary and highly practical, the text focuses on the implications of pragmatics theory and research for language therapy, and considers how pragmatics therapy methods in turn influence theorizing. It offers an innovative perspective that extends current approaches to pragmatics involving speech acts, turn taking, and semantic contingency training, thereby relating them more effectively to the discourse or event in which they take place.
