Perspectives on language use and pragmatics, edited by Alessandro Capone is a fine collection of articles by well-known linguists and philsophers of language. The book is dedicated to the memory of linguist Sorin Stati and reflects the multiplicity of intellectual interests Stati had during his life. We can identify common themes, such as the definition of meaning as use or the importance of context and co-text in its construction, in all the papers. So, despite the fact that, following Capone (3), we can say that the book does not represent “a single school of thought”, the volume presents a rich overview of the current debate in pragmatics and gives readers a chance to be informed of the various perspectives available.

Abstract

Perspectives on language use and pragmatics, edited by Alessandro Capone is a fine collection of articles by well-known linguists and philsophers of language. The book is dedicated to the memory of linguist Sorin Stati and reflects the multiplicity of intellectual interests Stati had during his life. We can identify common themes, such as the definition of meaning as use or the importance of context and co-text in its construction, in all the papers. So, despite the fact that, following Capone (3), we can say that the book does not represent “a single school of thought”, the volume presents a rich overview of the current debate in pragmatics and gives readers a chance to be informed of the various perspectives available.
