Abstract:

This book probes into under-researched issues in L2 pragmatics. Firstly,
pragmatic competence, pragmatic awareness and metapragmatic awareness are
re-defined and clearly distinguished on theoretical grounds. Secondly,
pragmatic competence and its manifestations are evaluated on empirical grounds
by distinct criteria and validated testing measures. More importantly, genuine
pragmatic inference is elicited in contexts of online interpretation where
figurative speech plays a central role. Genre-specific discourse which occurs
in editorials and news reports serves as a natural testbed for examining the
role of advanced mind-reading abilities in developing pragmatic competence.
Sperber and Wilson’s relevance theory accommodates the findings of empirical
assessment and yields new insights in the cognitive procedures activated
during interpretation. The comprehensive theoretical and methodological
treatment of pragmatic competence makes this book of interest to researchers
and students in pragmatics, L2 theory and applications, genre studies, and to
those concerned with the cognitive underpinnings of communication in L2.
