Sto¨ckl (eds): Handbuch Sprache im Multimodalen Kontext De Gruyter, Berlin/Boston, 2016 1,2 Steven Schoonjans Received: 13 April 2017 / Accepted: 6 June 2017 / Published online: 12 June 2017 Springer International Publishing AG 2017 Introduction The study of multimodality, the interaction of words with other layers of expression in making and conveying meaning, is a major and growing field in present-day research in different disciplines, including linguistics and media and communication sciences. In this respect, one could say that the Handbook of Language in Multimodal Contexts (this is the English title as announced on the publisher’s website) comes at the right moment. Bringing together 21 contributions in both German and English, the volume ‘‘outlines the current theoretical-methodological and empirical situation in research on multimodal texts and communicative actions […] from an in principle multi- and transdisciplinary perspective, which does however have its foundation in linguistics’’ (p. III, my translation). The eventual goal is ‘‘to take linguistically based multimodality research to a clearer contouring and a further canonization of its objects, paradigms, notions, and methods’’ (p. VII, my translation). Indeed, as the editors indicate on page XIII of http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Corpus Pragmatics Springer Journals
