Abstract:

This volume focuses on work situations in Europe, North America and South-
Africa, such as academic, medical and public sector, or business settings, in
which participants have to make constant use of more than one language to
cooperate with partners, clients, or colleagues. Central questions are how the
social and linguistic organization of work is adapted to the necessity of
using
different languages and how multilingualism impinges on the communicative
outcome of different types of discourse or genres. Thus, the authors are all
interested in multilingual practices 'at work', which is to say how
different forms
of multilingual communication are managed, flexibly adjusted to, acquired,
and/or improved in a given workplace setting that often calls for particular
implicit or explicit language policies. Thus, this volume contributes to
the study
of workplace communication in a globalized world by drawing on different types
of authentic data.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
