      Professional Discourse gives a broad and multifaceted perspective on discourse in the professions, including law, business, medicine, science and the academic settings, technology and bureaucracy. For each of these professions, the book explores the dual relationship between discourse and context and outlines how professional discourse is continuously reconstructed in relation to changing contextual frameworks.

      The case studies discussed in the book are based on authentic texts and spoken data, collected within different environments and related to different domains. The book includes discussion of both theory and methodology, thus providing tools for exercises and future studies. The reader is introduced to a variety of analytical approaches, that of textlinguistics, pragmatics, genre studies, sociolinguistics, interactional sociolinguistics and sociology, psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology.

      The book gives theoretically grounded and systematically investigated answers to questions of relevance for advanced learners, practitioners and academic scholars.

      Please see attached file for more information about the book and how to order it.
