Abstract:

"Drawing largely on her own extensive research that spans the last three
decades, Professor Britt-Louise Gunnarsson has produced an account of
professional discourse in contemporary Europe that is fresh, lucid and
uncluttered. Many readers will be particularly interested in the latter
chapters exploring the increasing role of discourse in organizations.
Students of professional communications will also find many valuable
methodological insights in this important volume."
- John M. Swales, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, The University of
Michigan, USA.

Professional Discourse gives a broad and multifaceted perspective on
discourse in the professions. For each of these professions, the book
explores the dual relationship between discourse and context, outlining how
professional discourse is continuously reconstructed in relation to
changing contextual frameworks. The case studies discussed in the book are
based on authentic texts and spoken data, collected within different
environments and related to different domains. The book includes discussion
of both theory and methodology, thus providing tools for exercises and
future studies. The reader is introduced to a variety of analytical
approaches, that of text linguistics, pragmatics, genre studies,
sociolinguistics, interactional sociolinguistics and sociology,
psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology. The book gives theoretically
grounded and systematically investigated answers to questions of relevance
for advanced learners, practitioners and academic scholars.
