Yan Huang provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the central topics in pragmatics—implicature, presupposition, speech acts, and deixis. He also includes three 'interface' chapters on pragmatics and cognition (including relevance theory), pragmatics and semantics, and pragmatics and syntax. The survey and analyses are based on a rich collection of data drawn from a wide range of the world's languages.
