Module assignments


In contemporary linguistics, we have various ways to delineate pragmatics. Adopting a broad point of view, we can define pragmatics as the scientific study of all aspects of linguistic behaviour. These aspects encompass types and means of speech acts, language functions, communicative principles, knowledge, attitude and evaluation as well as text and discourse organisation. Pragmatics thus bridges the gap between the system side of language and the use side, and relates both of them at the same time. The focal point of pragmatics (from the Greek prãgma = act) is linguistic action (and inter-action), it is the hub around which all accounts revolve. We will accordingly focus on forms, functions, types of speech actions, both in traditional research and, taking the often mentioned ‘interactional turn’ into account, in more recently developed interactive (Web 2.0-based) media formats.
