The Handbook of Pragmatics, published under the auspices of the International Pragmatics Association (IPrA), provides easy access, for scholars with widely divergent backgrounds but with converging interests in the use and functioning of language, to the field of linguistic pragmatics, broadly conceived as the cognitive, social, and cultural study of language and communication. It is a continuously updated state-of-the-art report, functioning as a tool to enhance cross-disciplinary intelligibility in this necessarily interdisciplinary domain of scholarship.

While the bulk of the Handbook is published in loose-leaf format to allow for annual updating, this bound Handbook Manual was designed to provide as much as possible of the necessary background information on formative and related traditions and methods of research. An introductory chapter on “The pragmatic perspective” is followed by over one hundred articles situating pragmatics in relation to various traditions in the cognitive sciences, social sciences, cultural studies, philosophy of language, and linguistic proper, and exploring a range of important methodological tools.

“The number one resource for all people trying to come to grips with what is sought after in the field and to embark upon the field. This will become self-evident from the fact that almost every conceivable topic up to the time of writing in connection with the rubric of pragmatic is covered in the Handbook and that, more important, all the topics are written by leading scholars, many of whom are among the foremost authorities in their field. In other words, the breadth and the authoritativeness of the Handbook is beyond doubt.”
