This book presents current research on pragmatics in Malaysia. It covers research in pragmatics from different perspectives, using different approaches and examining different speech contexts. The chapters examine speech acts, face, repair and impoliteness.
There is data in English as well as in Malay from a range of sources including conversational interactions, broadcast talk, social media, a written corpus, and parliamentary debates. The language users studied include students, members of parliament, children with a
speech disorder, radio callers, homosexual men, as well as women with infertility problems. These diversities suggest how wide-ranging pragmatics studies in Malaysia are. This book is a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in pragmatics research in Malaysia.
