Dear IPrA member,
As a member of IPrA you will certainly be aware of the Association’s scientific goals. These have resulted in two major reference works published by John Benjamins:
• The IPrA Handbook of Pragmatics is designed as the Association’s central scientific instrument,
making available up-to-date information on topics in pragmatics and stimulating research in
domains that have remained less explored. The Handbook of Pragmatics has been available
online since 2003 and it was substantially updated in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. It will continue to be expanded and revised annually.
• This IPrA Handbook is accompanied by the comprehensive IPrA Bibliography of Pragmatics
Online. The annotated bibliography covers the broad field of pragmatics, conceived as an
interdisciplinary – cognitive, social, and cultural – perspective on natural language use. The current release contains over 43,000 records.
In honor of this close collaboration with IPrA, John Benjamins seizes the opportunity to make a unique offer exclusively to IPrA members :
a subscription for personal use to both the IPrA Handbook of Pragmatics Online and the IPrA Bibliography of Pragmatics Online for the duration of 12 months
at the unique price of € 50
The subscription will take effect from the date that we receive your payment, for the subsequent 12 months.
If you wish to take advantage of this special offer for IPrA members, please go to:
