Acquisition in Interlanguage Pragmatics provides readers with a much-needed insight into the development of pragmatic competence, an area of research long neglected in interlanguage pragmatics. The longitudinal investigation which provides the basic material for this book consists of a corpus of requests, offers and refusals of offers elicited from Irish learners of German over a ten-month study abroad period using production questionnaires and a variety of metapragmatic instruments. The analysis focuses on developments in these learners’ knowledge of discourse structure, pragmatic routines and internal modification. Findings present valuable information pertaining to the process of acquisition of pragmatic competence. They also point to the favourable but imperfect nature of the study abroad context for the development of pragmatic competence. A comprehensive discussion of theoretical and methodological issues, an in-depth analysis and an extensive bibliography make this book of interest to both researchers and students in interlanguage pragmatics, cross-cultural pragmatics, German as a foreign language and study abroad research.

“This interesting and well-written book will be especially appreciated by ILP researchers for its literature reviews, its depth of discussion on method, and its description and explanation of findings within a cognitive perspective. Those interested in study abroad will appreciate its information on the effects of a study abroad experience on the development of pragmatic competence.”
“Given the complexity of the data, one outstanding virtue of this volume is its painstaking clarity, both in arrangement and expression. [...] The clarity and depth of the presentation gives Barron's recommendations for pedagogical attention to pragmatic issues added force. Foreign language teachers, particularly teachers of German, of course, will find this volume valuable, as will students and researchers in speech act realization.”
“[...] the comprehensive and painstaking discussion of theoretical and methodological issues, on the one hand, and the innovative empirical findings, on the other, make Barron's book an invaluable contribution to the study of developmental pragmatics. As such, the book will be of particular interest to researchers and students in interlanguage pragmatics, cross-cultural pragmatics and study abroad research.”
“This volume is an important contribution to research in ILP. It is a very carefully designed and conducted study, clear and convincing in its structure, terminology, and argumentation, which everyone with an interest in SLA will read with great benefit.”
