This book explores the intercultural problems related to the widespread use
of English in written and oral communication by native and non-native
speakers in institutional and business settings. Each chapter looks at a
different set of issues emerging from the confrontation of cultures across
national, institutional and organizational discourse communities, taking an
intercultural or cross-cultural approach. The focus is on workplace
settings, both in institutional and business contexts (e.g. politics,
public services, media, international corporate communication, advertising,
business negotiations, etc.). The theme is all the more interesting today
not only in consideration of the sheer magnitude of this phenomenon and its
capillary spread, but above all on account of the pervasive penetration of
English into professional and workplace contexts as a communication
language also for local/internal communication. The complexity of
intercultural communication as an object of research is reflected in the
variety of the topics explored, the range of settings investigated, and the
diversity of methodological approaches taken.
