Pragmatic Comprehension in Learner-Native Speaker Discourse.
Kasper, Gabriele
Language Learning, v34 n4 p1-20 Dec 1984
Reports on a study of language learners' comprehension of speech acts and discourse functions, referred to as pragmatic comprehension. Analyzes two types of learners' pragmatic misunderstandings: their failure to distinguish between phatic talk and referential talk, and their failure to identify the intended illocutionary force of indirect speech acts.
