Taguchi and Roever present the latest developments in second language pragmatics research, combining acquisitional and sociolinguistic perspectives. They cover theories of pragmatics learning and research methods in investigating pragmatics, linking these with findings on the acquisition of second language pragmatics and with practice in teaching and assessing pragmatics. Discussing pragmatics in the context of multilingual societies and diverse contexts of use, they offer a broad perspective on this growing area.

Reviews

  • "Written by two leading authorities, Second Language Pragmatics offers a comprehensive review of pragmatics as an object of second language learning, instruction and assessment. The book masterfully lays out the advances made over three decades, showing in welcome descriptive detail how the field has benefited from the diverse theoretical perspectives and empirical traditions that define it today. Taguchi and Roever extend a persuasive invitation to further research on second language pragmatics as a multilingual, multicultural, and multicontextual enterprise."Gabriele Kasper, Professor of Second Language Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa
