Book – edited volume
The volume brings a number of papers which explore the interaction around the event of death. The volume revolves around J. L. Mey’s idea of the pragmeme, a situated speech act. A central tenet underlying the volume is that, in the case of death, everything we do/say is expected to be subordinated to providing solace.
