Acquiring Pragmatics

Social and cognitive perspectives


Acquiring Pragmatics offers a comprehensive synthesis of state-of-the-art research on the acquisition of pragmatics. It introduces the current topics of research in theoretical pragmatics and explores the issues they raise for language acquisition research and the new experimental designs which have been developed to address them.

While each chapter covers each topic in depth, it also places a strong emphasis on the underlying methodological aspects of each issue, which will help the reader to develop their own experimental designs. Key topics covered include:

  • The interfaces between pragmatics and language acquisition
  • The social aspects of pragmatic competence
  • The cognitive aspects of pragmatic competence
  • The acquisition of pragmatics in autistic spectrum disorders and second language acquisition

Acquiring Pragmatics is key reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying pragmatics and language acquisition.
