A Closer Look at Cotext

R. C. Olson

Sapporo Gakuin University, Japan

Cotext is defined by the Pragmatics SIG as “what is said before the utterance and what is likely to come after the utterance.” Often confused with context, the objective location and time of a given conversation, cotext may be defined as the influence of the personal beliefs and experiences of each participant in the conversation. This presentation will expand on the Pragmatics SIG’s definition of cotext, show how cotext may enhance communication, and conclude with a question and answer session. Spoiler alert! Will cotext help your students learn English faster? No. But it will help them speak English better!
