Abstract:

The rhetorical practices involved with the dissemination of scientific 
discourse are shifting. Addressing these changes, this book places the 
discourse of science in an increasingly multilingual and multicultural 
academic area. It contests monolingual assumptions informing scientific 
discourse, calling attention to emerging glocal discourses that make hybrids 
of the standard globalized and local academic English norms. 

English clearly has a hegemonic role as the lingua franca of global academia; 
this book conducts an intercultural rhetorical and textographic analysis to 
compare how Anglophone and non-Anglophone academics utilise the 
standardized rhetorical conventions for scientific writing. It takes an 
academic literacies approach, providing a rhetorically and pedagogically 
informed discussion. It enquires into the process of linguistic and rhetorical 
acculturation of both monolingual and multilingual scholars, and in doing so 
redefines the contemporary rhetoric of science.

"Llantada's volume introduces the reader to a fuller understanding of the 
interrelatedness between science, language(s), culture(s) and the processes 
of globalization. It does so by combining both text-linguistic and ethnographic 
analyses. Taking the Spanish scholarly community as an instance, she 
explores the situational context of scientific discourse production and yields 
evidence of discursive similarities but also hybridization processes in 
academic norms across different cultural contexts." -- Maurizio Gotti, 
Professor of Linguistics and Director of the Language Centre, University of 
Bergamo, Italy
