Geoffrey Leech, “Principles of Pragmatics”

Over the years, pragmatics �?the study of the use and meaning of utterances to their situations �?has turn out to be a additional and additional essential branch of linguistics, as the inadequacies of a purely formalist, abstract approach to the study of language have turn out to be additional evident. This book presents a rhetorical model of pragmatics: that’s, a model which studies linguistic communication in terms of communicative objectives and principles of ‘good communicative behaviour�? In this respect, Geoffrey Leech argues for a rapprochement between linguistics plus the conventional discipline of rhetoric. He doesn’t reject the Chomskvan revolution of linguistics, but rather maintains that the language system within the abstract �?i.e. the ‘grammar�?broadly in Chomsky’s sense �?should be studied in relation to a fully developed theory of language use. There’s as a result a division of labour between grammar and rhetoric, or (within the study of meaning) between semantics and pragmatics. The book’s primary focus is thus on the development of a model of pragmatics within an overall functional model of language. In this it builds on the speech avct theory of Austin and Searle, plus the theory of conversational implicature of Grice, but at the exact same time enlarges pragmatics to include politeness, irony, phatic communion, and other social principles of linguistic behaviour.
