Murphy in Pragmatics and Society!

Posted on May 20, 2014 by

LEL PhD student James Murphy has had an article published in the journal Pragmatics and Society!

The article deals with (Im)politeness during Prime Minister’s Questions in the U.K. Parliament, and Murphy analyses both the questions and the answers according to theories of politeness. It’s an enhanced version of his MA dissertation, which was also carried out here in LEL under the supervision of Maj-Britt Mosegaard Hansen.

Congratulations, James!
