Paper

Seamos pragmáticos fills a void in the growing field of Spanish pragmatics. As more courses at the undergraduate level are being added to university Spanish programs, this practical text is specifically tailored for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with little or no background in linguistics. It is also the first of its kind in the U.S. written entirely in Spanish.
 
Derrin Pinto is an associate professor of Spanish at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. Carlos de Pablos-Ortega is associate professor in Spanish and Audiovisual Translation at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, U.K.
"Finally, a pragmatics-oriented book for learning Spanish!  This textbook is written with clarity, practical communicative proposals and [an abundance of] exercises by two experts in Second Language Acquisition. [A] highly recommended [text] for university teaching of Spanish."—Nieves Hernández-Flores, University of Copenhagen  
"This book will be a great resource for students in Spanish Applied Linguistics and Spanish Education programs. Considering that most textbooks on pragmatics are written in English, the fact that this book is written in Spanish at a level that is easily accessible for non-native speakers makes it very appealing."—Victoria Russell, Valdosta State University
