Abstract:

The focus of this volume is on medical discourse, a domain of language
which deserves closer scrutiny by academics as well as practitioners, due
to its increasing relevance and pervasiveness in modern society. Despite
the wealth of publications dealing with specialized or academic discourse
and its rhetoric, few of these are devoted specifically to medical
discourse. This book seeks to redress the balance by bringing together a
number of studies that bear witness to the widespread interest in medical
texts shown by linguists and professional communities around the world. The
volume is divided into two main parts: the first targets medical discourse
in its spoken dimension, while the second contains various analyses of
written texts. The theoretical perspectives and individual case studies
presented here reflect the wide range of metho-dological approaches and
theoretical issues that characterise current research in the field.
