<I>Concise Encyclopedia of Pragmatics </I>(COPE) 2e is an authoritative single-volume reference resource comprehensively describing the discipline of pragmatics, an important branch of natural language study dealing with the study of language in it's entire user-related theoretical and practical complexity.

As a derivative volume from <I>Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics</I> 2e, it comprises contributions from the foremost scholars of semantics in their various specializations and draws on 20+ years of development in the parent work in a compact and affordable format. Principally intended for tertiary level inquiry and research, this will be invaluable as a reference work for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as academics inquiring into the study of meaning and meaning relations within languages. As pragmatics is a centrally important and inherently cross-cutting area within linguistics, it will therefore be relevant not just for meaning specialists, but for most linguistic audiences.


Relevant to any department, institute or individual interested in meaning and meaning relations within linguistics, of particular interest to those interested in pragmatics, semantics, morphology, typology, syntax, and computational linguistics.
