The Handbook of Pragmatics, published under the auspices of the International Pragmatics Association (IPrA), provides easy access, for scholars with widely divergent backgrounds but with converging interests in the use and functioning of language, to the field of linguistic pragmatics, broadly conceived as the cognitive, social, and cultural study of language and communication. It is a continuously updated state-of-the-art report, functioning as a tool to enhance cross-disciplinary intelligibility in this necessarily interdisciplinary domain of scholarship. While the bulk of the Handbook is published in loose-leaf format to allow for annual updating, this bound Handbook Manual was designed to provide as much as possible of the necessary background information on formative and related traditions and methods of research. An introductory chapter on "The pragmatic perspective" is followed by over one hundred articles situating pragmatics in relation to various traditions in the cognitive sciences, social sciences, cultural studies, philosophy of language, and linguistic proper, and exploring a range of important methodological tools.
