Week 9: Pragmatics

This week, we’ll wrap up our exploration of meaning by discussing pragmatics, the way that context contributes to meaning. Please read files 7.1 and 7.2 in Language Files, available on our Readings & Videos page. Then, please respond to this week’s discussion board topic by 11:59pm this Friday.

Additionally, don’t forget that your Midterm is due by 11:59pm this Friday, 24 March. It covers all materials from weeks 1 through 8. You can submit it as many times as you like before then, but only the final submission will be graded.

Finally, if you have not yet submitted Quiz #3, which was due on Friday, please do so ASAP.
