Abstract:

Pragmatic competence plays a key role in the era of globalization where 
communication across cultural boundaries is an everyday phenomenon. The 
ability to use language in a socially appropriate manner is critical, as lack of it 
may lead to cross-cultural miscommunication or cultural stereotyping. This book 
describes second language learners' development of pragmatic competence. It 
proposes an original theoretical framework combining a pragmatics and 
psycholinguistics approach, and uses a variety of research instruments, both 
quantitative and qualitative, to describe pragmatic development over one year. 
Situated in a bilingual university in Japan, the study reveals patterns of change 
across different pragmatic abilities among Japanese learners of English. The 
book offers implications for SLA theories, the teaching and assessment of 
pragmatic competence, and intercultural communication.
