Pragmatics and language learning, volume 12

"A must-read for researchers who want to stay informed about the current direction of SLA pragmatics research"
--Studies in Second Language Acquisition

View the table of contents. Pragmatics & Language Learning Volume 12 examines the organization of second language and multilingual speakers’ talk and pragmatic knowledge across a range of naturalistic and experimental activities. Based on data collected on Danish, English, Hawai‘i Creole, Indonesian, and Japanese as target languages, the contributions explore the nexus of pragmatic knowledge, interaction, and L2 learning outside and inside of educational settings. PRAGMATICS & LANGUAGE LEARNING (“PLL”), a refereed series sponsored by the National Foreign Language Resource Center at the University of Hawai‘i, publishes selected papers from the biennial Conference on International Pragmatics & Language Learning under the editorship of the conference hosts and the series editor, Gabriele Kasper. Check the NFLRC website for upcoming PLL conferences and PLL volumes.
