The Pragmatics SIG welcomes members who are interested in both research and practical teaching issues related to "how people do things with words." The group's newsletter, Pragmatic Matters, is published electronically three times a year. The SIG takes an active part in the Pan SIG Conference and holds a forum at the annual JALT national conference. Our Pragmatics Resources series offers practical and theoretical papers on language in use. If you do anything with language, you are using pragmatics! So, come join us!
