Abstract:

This collection of papers is designed to establish variational 
pragmatics. This new field is situated at the interface of pragmatics 
and dialectology and aims at systematically investigating the effect of 
macro-social pragmatic variation on language in action. As such, it 
challenges the widespread assumption in the area of pragmatics that 
language communities are homogeneous and also addresses the 
current research gap in sociolinguistics for variation on the pragmatic 
level. The introductory chapter establishes the rationale for studying 
variational pragmatics as a separate field of inquiry, systematically 
sketches the broader theoretical framework and presents a framework 
for further analysis. The papers which follow are located within this 
framework. They present empirical variational pragmatic research 
focusing on regional varieties of pluricentric languages. Speech acts 
and other discourse phenomena are addressed and analysed in a 
number of regional varieties of Dutch, English, French, German and 
Spanish. The seminal nature of this volume, its empirical orientation 
and the extensive bibliography make this book of interest to both 
researchers and students in pragmatics and sociolinguistics.
