Abstract:

This volume explores the relationship between shared disciplinary norms and
individual traits in academic speech and writing. Despite the standardising
pressure of cultural and language-related factors, academic communication
remains in many ways a highly personal affair, with active participation in
a disciplinary community requiring a multidimensional discourse that
combines the professional, institutional, social and individual identities
of its members.

The first section of the volume deals with tensions involving
individual/collective values and the analysis of collective vs. individual
discoursal features in academic discourse. The second section comprises
longitudinal investigations of the academic output of single scholars, so
as to highlight the individuality in their choices and the reasons for not
conforming with the commonality of conventions shared by their professional
community. The third part deals with genres that are meant to impose
commonality on the members of an academic community, not only in the
drafting of specialized texts but also when these are reviewed or evaluated
for possible publication.

can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any

your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
