Course description

Short description

The course presents a review of two culture-related areas in sociopragmatic research: cross-cultural pragmatics, which deals with differences in verbal behavior across languages and cultures, and intercultural pragmatics, which examines actual communication between speakers of different languages and cultures. The course presents empirical research in both areas, reviews different explanatory frameworks used to account for the observed differences, and addresses methodological issues related to these two subfields of pragmatics.
