Product Description

Review

'A beautifully clear, insightful and entertaining overview of relevance theory, which takes readers from first principles to recent developments in a warm, witty and fair-minded way. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in how communication works.' Deirdre Wilson, University College London

Product Description

Over the past twenty years, relevance theory has become a key area of study within semantics and pragmatics. In this comprehensive new textbook, Billy Clark introduces the key elements of the theory and how they interconnect. The book is divided into two parts – the first providing an overview of the essential machinery of the theory, and the second exploring how the original theory has been extended, applied and critically discussed. Clark offers a systematic framework for understanding the theory from the basics up, building a complete picture and providing the basis for advanced research across a range of topics. With this book, students will understand the fundamentals of relevance theory, its origins in the work of Grice, the relationship it has to other approaches, and its place within recent developments and debates.

More About the Author

I am a linguist based at Middlesex University in London. I find questions about language and meaning endlessly fascinating and I'm convinced that everyone else does too.

I write, teach and research on a broad range of language and linguistics-related topics, but my main interests are all connected in some way with linguistic meaning (linguistic semantics and pragmatics). I have a particular interest in how meanings are created and negotiated in specific contexts. I'm currently carrying out research on the nature of prosodic meaning, visual/multimodal meaning, and the inferential processes involved in producing, interpreting and evaluating texts.
