Application of Cooperative Principle in College English Listening Comprehension

Xianjun Tan, Chunyang Wang, Liu Peng

Abstract


In terms of college English listening comprehension, the students in mainland of China should figure out the explicit communicative intention of the speakers and the implicit communicative intention of the speakers as well. Guided by the cooperative principle in pragmatics, this essay has a preliminary discussion on the use of the principle in the listening comprehension of non-English majors, which aims to help the students to figure out the communicative intention (especially the implicit communicative intention) of the speakers successfully. Consciously using pragmatics in college English listening comprehension could promote the sound development of college English teaching and learning in mainland China.
