A Resource Book for Students

3rd Edition

Welcome to the website materials accompanying Pragmatics by Joan Cutting. Each section of these materials takes the theories and practice of each of the eight topics discussed in the book (Speech Act Theory, Cooperative Principle, Politeness Theories, etc.) and allows you to try out the approach to analysis on additional authentic data and consider further applications to teaching and more research ideas.

The sections can be worked on in any order. They can be studied individually or in groups, according to your needs. We hope that you enjoy them.
