Intercultural Pragmatics

Istvan Kecskes

  • The first book-length work on intercultural pragmatics
  • Analyzes how language systems are used in social encounters between speakers who have different first languages and cultures, yet communicate in a common language
  • Boldly combines the pragmatic view of cooperation with the cognitive view of egocentrism in order to incorporate emerging features of communication.
