No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book is a pragmatic linguistic analysis of the American University Alma Mater and Fight Song. It delineates the symbolic meanings in the songs by examining their historical context, deixis, presuppositions, implicatures, and speech acts. The originality of the book hinges upon the clarity with which familiar but unconnected facts about the texts analyzed are marshalled into a simpler, linguistically satisfying unity.
