Introducing Pragmatics in Use is a lively and accessible introduction to pragmatics, which both covers theory and applies it to real spoken and written data. Pragmatics is the study of language in context, yet most textbooks rely on invented language examples. This innovative textbook systematically draws on language corpora to illustrate features such as creativity in small talk or how we apologise in English. It will also look at the pragmatic implications of the globalisation of the English language and will focus on the applications of pragmatics for teaching languages. In addition, there will be a chapter on researching pragmatics aimed at developing students research skills. With a range of lively tasks and further reading, this is the ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students of pragmatics and corpus linguistics within applied language/linguistics or TEFL/TESOL degrees.
