Pragmatics and Society puts the spotlight on societal aspects of language use,
while incorporating many other facets of society-oriented pragmatic studies.
It brings together a variety of approaches to the study of language in
context, inspired by different research perspectives and drawing on various
disciplines, for instance, sociology, psychology, developmental and cognitive
science, anthropology, media research, and computer-related social studies. It
is concerned with how language use and social normativity influence and shape
each other, for instance, in education (the teaching and acquisition of first
and second languages), in political discourse (with its manipulative language
use), in the discourse of business, and in all kinds of discriminatory uses of
language (gender- and class-based or other). Finally, it pays special
attention to the impact that technologically mediated communication and
increased immersion in technology have on social interaction, as well as to
the emancipatory potential of pragmatics.

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics
