The ten volumes of Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights focus on the
most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, thus dividing its
wide interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable
way. While the other volumes select specific philosophical,
cognitive, grammatical, social, cultural, variational, or
interactional angles, this 8th volume focuses on theories and
phenomena at the level of discourse, but leaving aside
conversational interaction. It provides the reader with
pragmatics-oriented information on discourse analysis, critical
discourse analysis and critical linguistics, as well as text
linguistics and appraisal theory, while introducing other specific
approaches to discourse through concepts such as polyphony,
intertextuality, genre, and nonciation. Furthermore, topics such as
public discourse, narrative, figures of speech, cohesion and
coherence, pragmatic markers, manipulation, and humor, are all
dealt with in separate chapters. The binding idea, explained in the
introduction, is that discursive pragmatics may serve as a platform
for a diversity of perspectives on discourse, as they have emerged
not only in the language sciences but also in the humanities and
social sciences in general.
