Pragmatic Transfer.
Kasper, Gabriele
Second Language Research, v8 n3 p203-31 Oct 1992
Attempting to clarify the concept of pragmatic transfer, this article proposes as a basic distinction Leech/Thomas' dichotomy of sociopragmatics versus pragmalinguistics, presenting evidence for transfer at both levels. Issues discussed include pragmatic universals in speech act realization, conditions for pragmatic transfer, communicative outcomes, and research methodology problems. (108 references) (Author/LB)
