Produktbeschreibung
This book will enable students, researchers and practitioners with some background in applied linguistics and/or (business) communication to engage with most of the issues raised by the multidisciplinary field of business discourse. To applied linguists new to business communication, and to researchers with a business background and with an interest in language and communication, this book offers accessible, varied and well-documented material inspired by practice-shaping research in business contexts.
The latest developments in research methodology are discussed through problem-solving case-studies; issues emerging from the field such as the role of new technology and of globalisation, are showcased to stimulate research projects that reflect the multicultural and multimedial reality of the corporate world. Readers are encouraged to adopt a reflexive, and where possible, multi-disciplinary and collaborative mode of action that is one of the strengths of business discourse research in practice. The book also illustrates the benefits of sustained dialogue and field-led applications across allied disciplines.

Rezensionen
'This book provides a comprehensive and fresh perspective on business discourse research. It offers an engaging read about various theoretical and methodological approaches to language use at work and situates the field in its historical context. I particularly enjoyed reading the pioneering scholars' personal profiles who have had important roles in creating this international disciplinary community. I find this book an important and timely contribution to the growing field of business discourse.' - Rebecca Piekkari, Aalto University, Finland

'This book is the most comprehensive treatment on the subject of business discourse in recent years, and it is an indispensable guide that all serious scholars in the field use. What makes this work outstanding is the way in which it complements broad discussion of concepts with specific examples of research that applied the concepts in novel ways. The authors balance concerns of academic research, business applications, and teaching approaches, making the book valuable in multifaceted ways.' - Daphne Jameson, Cornell University, USA

'The book...is an excellent resource for students attempting to better understand the applicability of discourse analysis as well as for professionals hoping to better improve their consideration of communication in the business field.' - The Linguist List
