Pragmatic Knowledge and its Reflection in EFL M...

Textbooks play a crucial role in language teaching particularly in EFL classrooms where they provide the primary form of linguistic input. EFL textbooks are expected to develop EFL students' linguistic and pragmatic competences. Pragmatics, claimed by some to be the fifth skill in language learning, needs to be incorporated as an integral component of EFL textbooks. However, there is little knowledge on how well pragmatic aspects of language are taken into consideration in developing EFL textbooks in general and Iranian high school English books in particular. This book addressing this gap in the literature attempts to explore pragmatic knowledge incorporation into English books in Iranian public education system. EFL teachers and researchers whose professional and academic interest lie in English teaching in public schools will benefit from studying this book.

BASIC VERBA DICENDI IN ACADEMIC SPOKEN ENGLISH
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Although academic English has constituted an object of study for a number of years now, the major thrust of the investigations has been couched in pursuing linguistic inquiries into academic written English to the apparent neglect of academic spoken English. Consequently, this monograph constitutes an attempt to occupy the niche by investigating the syntax, semantics, pragmatics and functions of the basic verba dicendi (say, talk, tell and speak) in the lecture talk, a prototypical genre in academic spoken English. Since the research into the basic verba dicendi was empirical, drawing on corpus linguistics as a major methodological tool, the findings may be revealing inasmuch as they could either validate or disconfirm our introspective (hypo)theses concerning the actual use of the basic verba dicendi in academic spoken English. The applications of the findings might be numerous: EAP material writers would be in a better position to generate books which reflect actual language use, educators could teach academic spoken English which is actually employed, linguists would revise their knowledge of the basic verba dicendi in the light of their actual use in the academic milieu.

Utterances and their Meanings: an Introduction ...
32,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is an introduction to pragmatics designed for English learners learning pragmatics. It introduces some topics commonly discussed in pragmatics: deixis, implicature, speech act, and politeness. What makes this book different from other pragmatics books is that it simplifies the origin books discussing those topics. The simplication is called for since for most EFL (English as a Foreign Language) learners, pragmatics theories are difficult. As such, this book is analogous to a stepping stone to the original version of pragmatics books. Most examples of talks presented in this book are naturally-occuring ones that I have collected from various sources such public places, mass media, and daily conversation. For the sake of authenticity, they are written in original languages, and they are provided with the English version.

Historical (Im)politeness
82,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This edited collection investigates historical linguistic politeness and impoliteness. Although some research has been undertaken uniting politeness and historical pragmatics, it has been sporadic at best, and often limited to traditional theoretical approaches. This is a strange state of affairs, because politeness plays a central role in the social dynamics of language. This collection, containing contributions from renowned experts, aims to fill this hiatus, bringing together cutting-edge research. Not only does it illuminate the language usage of earlier periods, but by examining the past it places politeness today in context. Such a diachronic perspective also affords a further test-bed for current models of politeness. This volume provides insights into historical aspects of language, particularly items regularly deployed for politeness functions, and the social, particularly interpersonal, contexts with which it interacts. It also sheds light on how (social) meanings are dynamically constructed in situ, and probes various theoretical aspects of politeness. Its papers deploy a range of multilingual (e.g. English, Spanish, Italian and Chinese) diachronic data drawn from different genres such as letters, dramas, witch trials and manners books.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, University of Duisburg-Essen, course: Pragmatics, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In 1987 Penelope Brown and Stephen Levinson's book Politeness. Some Universals in Language Usage was published. They analyzed the pragmatically term politeness and the concept of face. But it was not only them who worked on that topic. Other persons who dealt with pragmatics too started to write books about politeness, mostly in reference to Brown's and Levinson's theory. Most of the books that were published are theoretical. Some of them include examples to underline the expositions and to make them more understandable. But the question is if pragmatical politeness is a phenomenon that is also noticeable in everyday language or if it really is a more theoretical term and therefore can hardly be practiced. To answer this question it is important to first give a definition of the pragmatical term politeness and to analyze it by using those theoretical books. Only then is it possible to prove if politeness is either used in everyday language or not. After that it is necessary to analyze a medium that is representative of daily situations. In this case one episode of the serial Friends will be worked on to see if it includes examples of the different parts of pragmatical politeness. When the analysis of both parts, the theoretical and the practical, is completed the question if pragmatical politeness is a more theoretical term or if it is noticeable in everyday language too will be answered.
