Kurzbeschreibung

Those aspects of language use that are crucial to an understanding of language as a system, and especially to an understanding of meaning, are the acknowledged concern of linguistic pragmatics. Yet until now much of the work in this field has not been easily accessible to the student, and was often written at an intimidating level of technicality. In this textbook, however, Dr Levinson has provided a lucid and integrative analysis of the central topics in pragmatics - deixis, implicature, presupposition, speech acts, and conversational structure. A central concern of the book is the relation between pragmatics and semantics, and Dr Levinson shows clearly how a pragmatic approach can resolve some of the problems semantics have been confronting and simplifying semantic analyses. The complexity of these issues is not disguised, but the exposition is always clear and supported by helpful exemplification. The detailed analyses of selected topics give the student a clear view of the empirical rigour demanded by the study of linguistic pragmatics, but Dr Levinson never loses sight of the rich diversity of the subject. An introduction and conclusion relate pragmatics to other fields in linguistics and other disciplines concerned with language usage - psychology, philosophy, anthropology and literature. Many students in these disciplines, as well as students of linguistics, will find this a valuable textbook.

Synopsis

Those aspects of language use that are crucial to an understanding of language as a system, and especially to an understanding of meaning, are the acknowledged concern of linguistic pragmatics. Yet until now much of the work in this field has not been easily accessible to the student, and was often written at an intimidating level of technicality. In this textbook, however, Dr Levinson has provided a lucid and integrative analysis of the central topics in pragmatics - deixis, implicature, presupposition, speech acts, and conversational structure. A central concern of the book is the relation between pragmatics and semantics, and Dr Levinson shows clearly how a pragmatic approach can resolve some of the problems semantics have been confronting and simplifying semantic analyses. The complexity of these issues is not disguised, but the exposition is always clear and supported by helpful exemplification. The detailed analyses of selected topics give the student a clear view of the empirical rigour demanded by the study of linguistic pragmatics, but Dr Levinson never loses sight of the rich diversity of the subject.

An introduction and conclusion relate pragmatics to other fields in linguistics and other disciplines concerned with language usage - psychology, philosophy, anthropology and literature. Many students in these disciplines, as well as students of linguistics, will find this a valuable textbook.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very useful Textbook 11. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Students of linguistics, when they begin their university life, face a seemingly impenetrable chaos of different approaches and schools, sub-disciplines and objects of study. What is desperately needed then, are textbooks providing first insights into the various problems as well as literature that will help to master those fields that do not become a major interest, but remain part of the course requirements. The present volume is that book in Pragmatics. In seven clearly structured chapters, Levinson provides a step-by-step overview, introducing the reader to all relevant schools of thought and all the important issues. The author manages quite well not to confuse beginners and at the same time not to bore more advanced readers. Additionally, the logical arrangement of topics makes the book a useful volume of reference for exams and papers. A large bibliography, featuring the classics of the discipline as well as taking into account more recent sources, is the icing on this delicious cake.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very readable introduction 23. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I would highly recommend this very readable introduction to the pragmatic revolution in linguistics. The book is organized incredibly well with each chapter dealing with a curiously inexplicable lingusitic phenomenon that just happens to have a clean, pragmatic answer. Levinson weaves linguistic theory and philosophy of language well with a very readable format and style. I found it especially useful as a primer for recent philosophy of language.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not Your First Choice in Pragmatics 22. Juni 2008
Von Nick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For the reader with no time to lose, I'll start right away by telling you which book on Pragmatics you ought to get if you want a good introduction to it: "Pragmatics" by George Yule, because it is much more concise, to the point, covers a lot of ground quickly, deals with the essential.

Now, Levinson's book is a book I read twice, and from which I never retain anything. The first time I read it - entirely - I could not mention anything I had read in there. I thought I was simply a bad reader, but after having studied pragmatics for a long time, I realised that the book was simply not well written. It goes into complicated details too fast, before the reader has any real grasp on the matter, and gets lost in discussions that readers usually aren't able to understand, nor care for.

Typically, I'd say that Levinson's book is an "introduction" written by someone who knows not what it is like to know nothing about pragmatics. And even when you know of the subject, you still find his book rather difficult to follow.

I strongly urge you to consider George Yule's book on pragmatics rather than this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction to pragmatics 20. Oktober 2007
Von Yosem Companys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
While this book is dated since it has not been updated since 1983, it remains as a classic introductory text for the field of pragmatics. The book does a great job of introducing the reader into various areas of the pragmatics field in an interdisciplinary fashion but with an explicit focus on linguistics. The major problem of the book is that someone lacking a background in syntax/semantics will find the book challenging to read. Moreover, the book requires a solid grounding in logic to understand well. In sum, I would recommend this book as an excellent introduction to pragmatics, but I would caution the buyer to read an introductory linguistics text prior to buying this book.
3.0 von 5 Sternen A difficult read. 11. Juli 2014
Von Karl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Linguistics concerned meaning is always troublesome. It poses much difficulty to a new student. Yet this book tried its best to convey meaning.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A little too pragmatic. 25. Januar 2003
Von A. Sullivan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am currently using this book, along with Relevance by Sperber & Wilson, for a Linguistic Pragmatics course. The material is interesting but the manner in which it reads is not very engaging. That makes for a challenging time trying to grasp the points the author is trying to convey.
