Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is an exceedingly important contribution to the understanding of the use of rhetorical devices in oral discourse....the volume as a whole gives us a rich, multicultural perspective on the impact of context and interaction in the construction of meaning." The Modern Language Journal

"This very cohesive volume will be of particular interest to second language reserchers studying speech acts....All of the articles in this volume provide insights into a wide variety of authentic speech events and speech acts." Susan Fiksdal, Studies in Second Language Acquisitions

Book Description

Case studies reveal how speakers attribute responsibility for acts and situations, particular forms of language and discourse relate to claims and disclaimers of responsibility, and verbal acts are themselves social acts, subject to such attributions.
