Abstract:

Current Trends in the Pragmatics of Spanish provides the reader with a
representative spectrum of current research in the most dynamic areas
of the pragmatics of Spanish. It brings together a collection of
academic essays written by well-established as well as emerging voices
in Hispanic pragmatics. The essays include applications of pragmatic
concepts to sub-fields of (Spanish) linguistics (i.e., pragmatics and
grammar; pragmatics and applied linguistics; pragmatics and cross- and
inter-cultural communication), studies of 'traditional' topics in
pragmatics (i.e., discourse markers, politeness, metaphor, humour) as
well as a proposal to amalgamate the dominant pragmatic approaches,
namely socio-pragmatics and cognitive pragmatics, into one
comprehensive model. The essays in this collection represent both new
theoretical and empirical research and as such they constitute a
valuable contribution to the field of pragmatics in general and an
essential reference to those researching the pragmatics of Spanish.
