Reviews

Sandrine Zufferey has done the fields of pragmatics, language acquisition, and cognitive science an invaluable service. Her book covers a remarkably broad range of results and ideas that she skillfully integrates into a beautifully structured, impeccably researched, and engaging synthesis. An authoritative and endlessly fascinating exposition of the state-of-the-art, Acquiring Pragmatics should be required reading for anyone interested in the study of pragmatics, its acquisition, and its place within the sciences of the mind. Julien Musolino, Rutgers University, USA This book gives a very readable and up-to-date review of a field in language acquisition that deserves more attention: pragmatics. I highly recommend it. Ted Sanders, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
