on the terminology used in business texts, from a morphological, lexicological,
and syntactic point of view.

The study of onomastics in business: the names of products or enterprises and
their effects on consumer behaviour.

Analyses with respect to the way external and internal communication of
enterprises work: descriptive studies as well as discourse analytical studies
detecting phenomena like discrimination, racism or the implicit expression of
power structures.

Studies showing the importance of (foreign) language(s) in business from both
the business people's and language learners' perspective.
