Linguistic Pragmatics is characterized by its continuous worldwide development into an extremely productive, innovative and intriguing research area within language studies.

At we invite you to explore the entire range of topics that cover this interdisciplinary yet coherent academic field, presenting to you two scholarly resources.

The Bibliography of Pragmatics Online covers the broad field of linguistic pragmatics, conceived as the interdisciplinary ­ cognitive, social, and cultural - science of natural language use.
It incorporates all the bibliographical data from the renowned Comprehensive Bibliography of Pragmatics (1987), edited by Jan Nuyts & Jef Verschueren (IPrA Research Center), 4 vols., 2197 pp.
The latest release of this flexible research instrument contains over 50,000 records, of which a majority includes an abstract. Entries of reviews, translations and reprints are linked to the record of the original publication.
The search engine is enhanced by a thesaurus.
Each annual update provides the relevant recent data.

The Handbook of Pragmatics Online is an encyclopaedia of one of the major fields of language studies and is a continuously updated source of state-of-the-art information for anyone interested in language use, using the authoritative Handbook of Pragmatics as a basis (edited by the IPrA Research Center since 1995).
It provides easy access ­ for scholars with widely divergent backgrounds but with convergent interests in the use and functioning of language ­ to the different topics, traditions and methods which together make up the field of Pragmatics, broadly conceived as “the cognitive, social and cultural study of language and communication”.
The Handbook is being expanded and revised annually, both in print and online. Future versions will add new records and will include updates, rewritings and extensive revisions of already existing records.

The Bibliography and Handbook are available from, separately or as a discounted combined subscription, as well as a free 90-day trial.
