Apprendimento, insegnamento e uso di competenze pragmatiche in italiano L2/LS: la ricerca a partire dagli anni Duemila
Keywords:PRAGMATICS, ITALIAN L2/FL, SPEECH ACTS, DISCOURSE MARKERS
The attention paid to pragmatics in the teaching and learning of Italian as a second language is a recent phenomenon. This young but lively area of research has inspired the present special issue of E-JournALL. This introductory essay offers a survey of studies since year 2000 that have dealt with the learning, teaching, and use of Italian as an L2/FL in relation to pragmatic phenomena, with special attention to the two sub-fields that have received the greatest attention: the realization of linguistic acts, and useful discourse markers for the management of textuality and interaction. This is followed by a brief recognition of research that tackles other topics related to the pragmatics of L2 Italian, for example the information structure of utterances, or the mechanisms that regulate conversation. The conclusion of this overview will demonstrate how the papers brought together in this issue fit into and simultaneously contribute to the expansion of research on Italian L2/FL pragmatics.
