Product description


A comprehensive introduction to cross-cultural and intercultural pragmatics for undergraduate and postgraduate students edited by Helen Spencer-Oatey ...The final section on methodology deserves special mention as it includes three practical and most useful chapters introducing students to the wide range of research methods and data-collection techniques in pragmatics research, the recording and analysis of data, and projects in intercultural pragmatics--The Year's Work In English Studies

This volume valuably extends Helen Spencer-Oatey's well-known contribution to our understanding of rapport management and relational work in different cultural contexts. Those teaching and researching cross-cultural and inter-cultural pragmatics will warmly welcome this scholarly yet accessible book which draws on a diverse range of contexts, communities and countries to address and illustrate issues of theory, method and evidence.--Sanford Lakoff

The analyses of pieces of intercultural communication make this book interesting and lively, while still retaining an academic perspective on the subject. This book is suitable for students and researchers of both intercultural communication and pragmatics alike. Culturally Speaking enables people to find out about and explain potential problems and pitfalls in intercultural interaction, thus providing guidelines for a better and more effective interaction across cultures.--Sanford Lakoff

"Helen Spencer-Oatey is a formative thinker in the field of inter-cultural pragmatics, and this revised edition of her introductory book provides an accessible overview of the discipline... an impressive collection" Journal for the Study of the New Testament Booklist 2009--Sanford Lakoff "Journal for the Study of the New Testament "
