Description

This book brings together papers written by William F. Hanks over the last decade, organized around the three central themes that have been emerged in his work: indexicality and referential practices; discourse genres and textuality; and the historical embeddedness of language. Together, they present the main elements of a coherent, synthetic approach to language in context.
