The Handbook of Pragmatics (HoP) is intended to be one of the major tools of the International Pragmatics Association to achieve its goals (i) of disseminating knowledge about pragmatic aspects of language; (ii) of stimulating various fields of application by making this knowledge accessible to an interdisciplinary community of scholars approaching the same general subject area from different points of view and with different methodologies; (iii) of finding, in the process, a significant degree of theoretical coherence. In prepartion of the Handbook, in the 1980s a number of IPrA Working Documents were produced, which you can download from this page (left hand side).
The Handbook is published by John Benjamins (Amsterdam/Philadelphia), who have agreed to make it available at a reduced rate for IPrA members. For information on how to order the Handbook, go to the John Benjamins website.
So far a bound Manual and twenty annual loose-leaf Installments have been published. A new phase started with the availability of the Handbook of Pragmatics online. This publication will be updated, revised, and expanded; revisions and additions will also continue to be published in the loose-leaf format. Meanwhile, also a 10-volume paperback series of thematically grouped Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights has been published.
