This is a review of recent work in pragmatics. Under focus are insights which radical forms of pragmatics have yielded, and which a number of writers on the subject have recently offered with the aim of highlighting the interactive dimension of pragmatic meaning. The new focus seeks to redress the imbalance which has plagued work in this area of contextual linguistics for many decades. To illustrate what is involved the field of translation studies is invoked and various aspects of pragmatic meaning are looked at from the perspective of intercultural communication.
