0. Preface

The Handbook of Pragmatics (HoP) is intended to be one of the major tools of the International Pragmatics Association to achieve its goals (i) of disseminating knowledge about pragmatic aspects of language; (ii) of stimulating various fields of application by making this knowledge accessible to an interdisciplinary community of scholars approaching the same general subject area from different points of view and with different methodologies; (iii) of finding, in the process, a significant degree of theoretical coherence. In prepartion of the Handbook, in the 1980s a number of IPrA Working Documents were produced, which you can download from this page (left hand side).

The Handbook is published by John Benjamins (Amsterdam/Philadelphia), who have agreed to make it available at a reduced rate for IPrA members.

For information on how to order the Handbook, see below.

So far a bound Manual and a number of annual loose-leaf Installments have been published. A new phase started a few years ago with the availability of the  Handbook of Pragmatics online. This publication will be updated, revised, and expanded; revisions and additions will also continue to be published in the loose-leaf format.

Meanwhile, also a 10-volume paperback series of thematically grouped Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights has been published.



1. Content and format

The basic aim of the Handbook is to provide easy access, for scholars with widely divergent backgrounds but with converging interests in the use and functioning of language, to the different topics, traditions and methods which, together, make up the field of pragmatics, broadly conceived as the cognitive, social, and cultural study of language and communication. For detailed information about the scientific scope, read the Introduction to the Handbook of Pragmatics online.

The Handbook is not intended as a textbook, nor as a forum for new research, but as a state-of-the-art report. The governing principle of the Handbook is that it will not be a once-and-for-all ready presentation of what goes on in the field of pragmatics, but that it is to be a continuously updated reference work. In principle this will be a process taking place over an indefinite time span. Updating does not imply that earlier research and ideas will be discarded as soon as they become less fashionable. Rather, the growth of the field should be progressively recorded. Just as history is treated with due respect, so is an attempt being made to avoid an unwarranted geographical bias. Though the Handbook is published in English, a conscious effort is made not to restrict the treatment of topics, methods, and traditions to an Anglo-American context.

The main body of the paper version of the Handbook is a loose-leaf format. It was preceded by a bound Handbook Manual which contains overviews of linguistic traditions and methods (updating of which now becomes easy thanks to the online version).

The paper version of the Handbook is sold on a subscription basis, starting with the Manual as the first installment. For the online version, both individual and site licences are available.


2. The structure of the Handbook of Pragmatics 

The paper version of the Handbook consists of two parts:

The Manual

Published in 1995; a clothbound book containing:

A general introduction on 'The pragmatic perspective' by Jef Verschueren (in order to give you a good idea of the precise scope of the Handbook, and of the range of topics of interest to IPrA in general, this article can be consulted in de demo version of the Handbook of Pragmatics online).

Articles on linguistic and related traditions relevant to pragmatics

Articles on linguistic methods

Articles on notational systems

The table of contents is presented in section 3.1 below.

Annual installments

In 1995 the publication was started of the main body of the Handbook, consisting of detailed articles of various sizes -- the average size of an article being +/- 12 pages or ca. 5000 words. The articles range in generality: some give a general overview of a particular field, others discuss a specific topic in quite some detail. There are also biographical entries on scholars relevant to the field of pragmatics. Articles present a state-of-the-art overview of what has been done on the topic. Often they also mention what has not been dealt with extensively (e.g. acquisitional and diachronic aspects), thus suggesting topics for further research. Important research in progress may also be mentioned. In addition, some references to major works are always provided. This main body of the Handbook is organized around entry-like key-words, alphabetically presented. Articles are not consecutively paginated, because of the loose-leaf format. During the first eight years of publication of the Handbook, the aim was to cover the major subfields of, and topics in, pragmatics quite extensively. Fair coverage of the field is therefore already available -- only to be further improved in the coming years.

Every new installment is accompanied by an updated user's guide (also loose-leaf). This guide also cross-references to the Handbook Manual and serves as a complete reference guide.

See below for an overview of what has been published so far (as of 2011).
