In this interview, I discuss pragmatics and pragmatic competence with Andreas Grundtvig, author of "English is Context," a new book for teachers and learners about English pragmatics. This is a big one! And we talk about a lot of amazing topics, including: - how gamers now, the gay community in the early twentieth century and London Cockneys evolved their own language ... and why; - why they rap the news in Senegal; - how learning about Grice's maxims can help you see through propaganda; - how to understand people from a particular country beyond the food, the flag and stuff like that; - how to terrorize people ... by being polite! - three things you can do right now to improve your pragmatic competence.
