Abstract:

English in academic and professional settings has received great attention
over the last 50 years, as its use has become a key asset for anyone
interested in improving his/her chances of communicating internationally.
However, it still offers rich opportunities for teachers and researchers working
on English in specific settings. The aim of English for Professional and
Academic Purposes
is to offer an overview of several topics within the
field of discourse analysis applied to English in academic and professional
domains. The book compiles contributions from different origins, ranging from
Japan to the USA and several European countries, and covers English as a
native, second, foreign and international language. It also deals with various
specialities, including academic writing, business discourse or English for
medicine, nursing, maritime industry and science and engineering. This
volume is divided into three sections: Discourse Analysis of English for
Academic Purposes, Professional English and EPAP Pedagogy, since it was
conceived as a contribution to the research on how English is analysed as
both the discourse of and for effective communication in academic and
professional settings, and how it can be applied to teaching. This manuscript
offers some fresh insights for those involved or interested in this field of
expertise, in an attempt to shed some light on its latest innovations.
