Abstract

Karin Aijmer, Professor of English at the University of Gothenburg in the years 1996–2006, is well known within the linguistic community, especially by virtue of her pioneering research within the domain of pragmatics in a broad sense, where her work in conversation and discourse analysis has played a particularly prominent role. In this work, a cross-linguistic perspective has also informed numerous contributions to translation studies as well as investigations into the language produced by advanced learners of English. Further, a profile of Karin Aijmer’s linguistic credentials would have to include her contributions to corpus linguistics at large, as a discipline in its own right. In this volume, a large number of Karin Aijmer’s wide network of friends and colleagues pay linguistic tribute, each in their own way, to her untiring exploration of some of the mysteries, or miracles, of ordinary, down-to-earth communication. As is readily seen from the table of contents, a fair share of the papers in this festschrift deal with subject matter that is close to her heart, making frequent reference to her work; others provide different perspectives, shedding light on some other areas of language and linguistics. Regardless of content and orientation, however, the contributing authors share a common wish to honour Karin Aijmer for her outstanding work.
