It covers a variety of issues related to developing pragmatic competence in the globalized context, such as the role of pragmatic competence in intercultural communication, the potential of and constraints on pragmatic instruction, as well as the much-debated question of whose norms to teach, given the evolving variations in language usage and use among English-speaking communities.
The chapter concludes with recommendations for classroom teachers who wish to teach pragmatic skills both inside and beyond the classroom context. For example, it is suggested that students be given more control of classroom discourse so that they can practice interactional rules of speaking. Teachers may also consider training students for future workplace communication by including in the syllabus job interviewing skills, business letter writing and so on.
Part 3 chapters introduces methodologies for researching pragmatics with a view to guiding novice researchers. The author once again emphasizes the value of researching and acquiring knowledge of pragmatics to develop a non-judgmental stance in intercultural communication. In short, Pragmatics for Language Educators is a valuable addition to the field of pragmatics and language teaching. Particularly, the inclusion of non-Western data caters well to readers who are non-native speakers of English and allows for a balanced, unbiased perspective on human interaction.
Students and instructors would find this book an engaging and thought-provoking read.
