Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,0, University of Leipzig (Anglistik), course: Pragmatics, language: English, abstract: Conversation analysis is one of the central elements in pragmatics. After introducing several pragmatics basics like the pragmatics principles it is important to relate them to a whole conversation. Since utterances do not occur alone but always within a conversation, they need to be analysed as unit. Regarding that, pragmatics wants to study language in use, whereby use is always conversation and communication. However, there is also a close connection to discourse analysis which includes power relations in institutional conversations, feminist analysis as well as literary studies. The interface of all these fields constitutes itself out of communication, of language in use. Therefore, the structure of this paper will be divided into two parts: the first one establishes the theoretical background with important terms for conversation analysis. Depending on the author, there are always slightly different aspects highlighted which will be summarized in that part to share the same background. Secondly, these tools will be applied to a literary text where especially the addition to a textual interpretation is shown. Taking "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen as the literary example, the attempt is to use a well-known text which concentrates mainly on accurate description of the real world. However, the tool of conversation analysis might be an addition to other interpretation and proves therefore as a interdisciplinary idea.

Jane Austen In The Context Of Abolition

This wide-ranging and convincingly argued study looks at the issues of and attitudes towards slavery in Jane Austen's later novels and culture, and argues against Edward Said's critique of Jane Austen as a supporter of colonialism and slavery. White suggests that Austen is both concerned and engaged with the issue, and that novels such as Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion not only presuppose the British outlawing of the transatlantic slave trade but also undermine the status quo of chattel slavery, slavery's most extreme form.

Previous biographies have set Jane Austen within her social context. This biography places her firmly within her professional context as one of an increasing number of women who published novels between 1790 and 1820. Being a professional writer was, apart from her family, more important to Austen than anything else in her life.

Emma is Jane Austen’s masterpiece and one of the supreme achievements of English fiction. Its cast of characters includes some of the author’s most fully realized creations, including the upstanding Mr Knightley, the egregious Mrs Elton and the irrepressibly garrulous Miss Bates. But Emma is dominated above all by the personality of its heroine, Emma Woodhouse, Austen’s portrayal of whom – a masterclass in irony and the management of narrative perspective – is one of the great high-wire acts of English literature. Among the most variously interpreted novels in the language, Emma has been seen as a cautionary tale about the dangers of unregulated imagination, the story of a woman’s humiliation and reform, and a rallying cry of early feminism. This e-book seeks to uncover something of Emma’s extraordinary multivalence through a close reading of the text, setting it in the context of Jane Austen’s life, times and literary heritage and looking at the way it has been read and re-read by critics in the two centuries since it was published.
