3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Chang Chia-jen on December 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book approaches pragmatics from a very different angle: interaction between interlocutors in a conversation or some sort of speech events like that. Due to this fact, I guess, some classicial subdomains of pragmatics are not included, such as presupposition and deixis, and issues like politeness are mentioned. As a nonnative speaker of English, I find it a little bit difficult to leave my dictionaries (note the plural forms of dictionary) far away from me. The wide variety of words with heavey culture-specific information make it hard for even proficient speakers to get the gist immediately.
It appears strange to me that why Thomas does not mention the taxanomy she discuss in her article published in Applied Linguistics in 1983. Has she aborted the distinction between sociopragmatics and pragmalinguistics?

This has to be one of the top five books I read in applied linguistics studies. That said, it serves as an introduction, its beauty being it leaves you with a good general sense of pragmatics. It is so clearly written and presented that I was able to 'get it' from one thorough read. It covers the great three: Austin, Searle, Grice and lots of other major contributors to politeness theory. Honestly, this has to be the definitive intro to pragmatics and I wouldn't be surprised if it goes into the next edition.
