“All in all, the ‘explorations’ live up to the promise in the title: they offer not a specialist morsel but a wide horizon, depicted in most contributions in a precise and principled way – a welcome venture in the times of the compartmentalization of pragmatic research. The papers are thought provoking to various degrees and contentious to various degrees but all are worth reading. The book is also the first volume in a new Mouton Series in Pragmatics edited by Istvan Kecskes and a successful springboard for what is to come.”

“…this volume gives and insightful view of the kind of theoretical issues pragmatics theorists are currently concerned with, touching upon some of the central topics that are of great importance to human communication, cognition and understanding. The editors of this volume should be credited for presenting a high-quality collection of papers contributed by scholars active in pragmatics studies. The value of this volume lies in inviting the reader to rethink some of the key aspects of pragmatics that are so essential to human interaction and mutual understanding. This volume should be of great value to anyone interested in pragmatics.” (Page 435)

“This book is a must read for whoever is interested in the exploration of fields as varied as theoretical linguistics, cognition, communication studies, pragmatics, second language acquisition, and bilinguism. Through his encyclopedic knowledge of these different areas of research, Kecskes convincingly shows how a linguistic and social phenomenon like SBU can be illuminated by a multi-disciplinary approach. This study also illustrates the analytical power of the Dynamic Model of Meaning, which attempts to reconcile traditions that have been opposed for too long. Beyond the specificity of its analytical focus, Situation-Bound Utterances in L1 and L2 demonstrates how necessary it becomes to cross disciplines in order to grasp the nature of language, whether in its use or its structure. In this regard, Kecskes’ book shows us the way to follow.”

“Every once in a while a book comes along that opens up completely new perspectives in a field. Kecskes and Papp’s highly original book is a fine example of this. While most research on bilingualism and applied linguistics has concentrated on the effects of the mother tongue on the foreign language, Kecskes and Papp look for instances of bi-directional transfer, i.e. not only L1–›L2, but also L2–›L1.

“Chapter 4 is one of the most fascinating chapters in this book, because it studies the concepts of ‘thought’ and ‘word’, and explains the passage from preverbal thought to discourse. I would like to emphasize that the authors do not stop at the lexical or clause level, but continue to the real language situation represented by discourse. They advocate that bilinguals have a specific mental lexicon development and give very interesting examples of how this mental lexicon is put to test in discourse, with one of the most intriguing linguistic topics in a foreign language, such as the case of metaphor.” (Jesus Romero-Trillo, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid).
