This book is a collection of new approaches to the study of communication
in business and other professional fields. The chapters are all related to
the role of discourse —spoken and written language— produced in different
domains. The contributions offers a multidisciplinary approach to this
topic and therefore provides a number of representative perspectives to the
different theoretical and methodological traditions that characterise this
subject from the experiences of different people in different parts of the

The variety in the articles gives a broad-based approach to the main
objectives of this book, applying several representative theoretical and
methodological views on the different traditions in this subject matter.
Firstly, our aim was to highlight the variety of discourse genres, i.e.,
business letters, academic tests, advertising, e-mails and online
communication, short reports, office conversations, job interviews, press
discourse, press releases, city tour guides, pedagogical texts,
customer-server conversation, etc. And secondly, to emphasize the presence
of a broad variety of theoretical approaches, i.e., systemic-functional
linguistics, critical discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, ethnography,
pragmatics, conversation analysis and cognitive linguistics.

This book targets the university public and/or specialists in the
university arena, and is also of interest to researchers and professionals
in the fields of linguistics, communications, marketing, microeconomics,
advertising, etc. As far as university courses are concerned, this book is
aimed at graduate and postgraduate students, teachers and researchers, for
