Professional identities are not only constructed through discourse, but can
also be studied and analysed through discourse and communication
behaviour, which is probably the most powerful resource available for the
understanding of their nature and function. The present volume investigates
the ways in which the discourses produced in a variety of professional
contexts, especially in business, legal and institutional spheres of action,
shape and manifest professional identities.

The focus of the studies in this collection is on whether, and to what extent,
the in-group identity of a given professional community and the norms
elaborated by it affect the communicative behaviour of the individual
participant or whether, and to what extent, the professional communication is
also affected by the participant's specific objectives in the performance of
that professional practice.

Most of the studies reported here employ discourse and genre analytical and
corpus linguistics tools to highlight the ways and means by which discourses
contribute to the analysis of typical identity traits of various professional
communities to provide some account of the way members of these
professional communities strategically manipulate linguistic resources to
achieve their professional objectives.
