I will pay for the following article Pragmatic Communication Problems. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Pragmatics is a sub-branch of linguistics developed in the late 1970s that deals with the study of how people comprehend and produce a communicative act or speech act in a concrete speech situation which is usually a conversation. It differentiates two intents or meanings in each utterance or communicative act of verbal communication. One may be the informative intent or the sentence meaning, and the other may be the communicative intent of speaker meaning (Leech, 1983. Sperber and Wilson, 1986). Kasper (1997) defined pragmatics as the ability to comprehend and produce a communicative act that frequently includes one’s knowledge about the social distance, the social status between the speakers involved, the cultural knowledge such as politeness, and the linguistic knowledge explicit and implicit.
Pragmatics also describes the problems or difficulties faced by the speakers while communicating their feelings or views. This happens when a person undergoes injuries due to accidents. In other words, the communication deficits or cognitive impairment caused by brain injury or any other disorder result in failure of self-monitoring. For example, the pragmatic communication problems caused by Acquired brain injury are severe and need effective assessment and treatment. Semantic Pragmatic Disorder is another example.
Friedland and Miller (1998) explained about the pragmatic communication problems faced by the closed head injury patients. It was identified that the language impairments and speaking abnormalities varied from person to person and hence the approach for treatment has to be different. It may be opined that poor self-monitoring qualities associated with the pragmatic communication problems are mainly influenced by some receptive communication deficits caused by brain injury etc. The receptive communication deficit due to Asperger’s disorder may also lead to pragmatic communication problems, severe language conversation problems and poor self-monitoring (Bishop, 1989). Asperger’s disorder is characterized by the following symptoms which lead to receptive communication deficits and language problems.
