Description:
This course deals with the relationship between language and its context. Whatever we say or write has an incomplete meaning until it is embedded into a concrete situation (e.g. time, place, goal, previous events, participants). By acquiring basic notions of pragmatic theory and analysis, we shall learn how people complement the said or written words with contextual information and in this way obtain the complete message. Through discussion and workshops, we will become aware to which degree our everyday communication depends on the context, but also how manipulating the relations between linguistic and extralinguistic reality is crucial for domains such as humour, advertising, and political polemics. We wil learn how people coming from different cultures frequently understand the same utterances in different ways. Through the speecah act theory we will observe the ways in which, if certain conditions are met, language can modify reality. The theory of politeness will show us how language helps shape hierarchical social relationships.
Knowledge of pragmatics will enable a better understanding of the mechanisms of verbal communication, which will help us build our own language and a critical approach to everything we hear or read.

Hrvatski studiji Sveučilišta u Zagrebu pokrenuti su i ustrojeni 16. studenoga 1992., isprva samo kao dvosemestralni Sveučilišni komparativni studij hrvatske filozofije i društva. Taj je program potom preoblikovan u program redovitog četverogodišnjeg studija.
