As you well know, pragmatics deals with how we use language in a particular context. This is important for translation because the same expressions may mean completely different things in different situations. This is quite obvious, but what we will do in this class is explore systematically when and how this happens. We will first look into context and contextual phenomena in general, and will then deal with deixis, speech acts, the cooperative principle, and politeness. In dealing with these topics we will focus on contrasting English and Croatian with a special emphasis on translation.
