This volume provides state-of-the-art accounts of a broad range of pragmatic research on fictional language, covering not only written genres, but also drama and telecinematic discourse. It is concerned with the ways in which communication is depicted or enacted in fiction and with the larger communicative context of the texts. Topics range from the participation framework, genre and style to oral features, (im)politeness and invented languages.
