An Interview with Anne O'Keeffe


  • Karina Veronica Molsing Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul



We are pleased to introduce the first of a series of interviews with renowned linguists from around the world who bring their international expertise and experience within the scope of the theme of the respective edition. In the current edition, we gratefully present a discussion with Professor Anne O’Keeffe, senior lecturer at Mary Immaculate College at the University of Limerick and director of the Inter-Varietal Applied Corpus Studies (IVACS) Research Center. Professor O’Keeffe was kind enough to meet with us at the IVACS Conference at Newcastle University (UK) this year to talk about recent trends in research in the area of pragmatics and the importance of pragmatics in the language learning classroom. We would like to compliment Professor O’Keeffe for her special contribution to this edition. We hope you will enjoy watching the interview and that, through its contents, further debates can be encouraged in the area of pragmatics and teaching.
