Pragmatic development and stay abroad

Research output: Journal contributionsOther (editorial matter etc.)Research


This Special Issue on Pragmatic Development and Stay Abroad further extends the research on pragmatic development, focusing in particular on pragmatic learning in a stay abroad context. The present introduction contextualises the papers and draws on key themes shared across papers. In so doing, it provides several impulses for future research on the study of pragmatic development in the stay abroad context. Specifically, the topics focused on include learner status, levels of pragmatic analysis, the use of corpus-linguistic and computerised technologies in interlanguage pragmatic data analysis and finally the influence of length of stay, intensity of interaction and also learner perceptions of input on the development of pragmatic competence during stay abroad.
