Untangling why, when, how and on what ‘it depends!’

Book review: English is Context. Andreas Grundtvig, 2021. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been telling my students ‘context is everything’.  It’s a rare occasion when I don’t preface my answer to a language related question with ‘it depends’.  But why does it depend?  When, how, and on what?

Now, finally, the world of ELT has a brilliant new resource for teachers that provides a comprehensive and accessible guide to what pragmatics in English actually entails, and offers practical classroom activities that support learners in gaining a deeper and clearer understanding of how English is used in context.
