Until very recently, pragmatics has been restricted to the analysis of contemporary spoken language while historical linguistics has studied historical texts and language change in a decontextualized way. This has now radically changed and scholars from around the world are trying to build a new theoretical framework that integrates recent advances both in pragmatics and in historical linguistics. The volume, which contains 22 original articles, starts with an introduction that is both a state-of-the-art account of historical pragmatics and a programmatic statement of its future potential and its different subfields. Part I contains seven pragmaphilological papers that deal with historical texts and their interpretations by paying close attention to the communicative context of these texts. The second and third parts comprise papers in diachronic pragmatics. The ten papers of part II take a linguistic form as their starting point, e.g. particular lexical items or syntactic constructions, and study their pragmatic functions at different times (diachronic form-to-function mappings), while the four papers of part III take a particular pragmatic function as their starting point, e.g. discourse strategies or politeness, and study their linguistic realisation at different times (diachronic function-to-form mappings).

The existence of Gulls is unquestionable; that they exist in the way portrayed in this book is for you to decide. The existence of off shore oil rigs is also unquestionable, and their becoming Spike Moulds Standing Upright in the Bright Mother Sea enhances rather than subtracts from their designed purpose. The wonders emerging from the Ocean of Energy are for you alone to investigate; they exist for your looking and laughing. The Ocean of Energy, like its much smaller water-filled sisters, is in constant motion with an inherent efficiency of the highest magnitude possible. What once was is recycled, and from this recycling, things are made anew, for what is important is never wasted. Appreciation of such wonders is, of course, an individual calling, and sadly, there are many amongst us today who seem convinced they actually own what the Ocean of Energy has freely created. The myriad of habitats created as havens for the life forms that followed the Beginning is a wonder greater than all else. The needs essential for daily survival were built unreservedly into the system so that they could be used freely whenever required. The record being left behind by my own species proves the system can be misused and abused. This misuse and abuse, so far as understood, seems to be tolerated because it is made from energy that has no inherent intelligence of its own. Come now, let Thag-Sea-Wolf and Humber-Current-Holly guide you through their remarkable journey while Harry Lloyd, living in a reality closely linked to Gulldom, guides you through his own story and the story of the oil industry.
