Book Information

   

Title: Language, Communication and the Economy
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2016
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 16
Description:

This volume brings together a number of wide-ranging, transdisciplinary
research articles on the interface between discourse studies and economics.
It explores in what way economics can contribute to the analysis of
discursive practices in various institutional settings as well as
investigating what role discourse studies can play in economic research.
The contributors are linguists, communication scholars, economists and
other social scientists drawing on various traditions including Critical
Discourse Analysis, Cognitive Linguistics, ethnography and the literature
on the rhetoric of economics and on economic storytelling. All articles are
essentially empirical, focusing on the details of actual language use. The
type of data analysed ranges from the minutes of university policy meetings
and large-scale corpora of newspaper language, over books of economic
theory from both well-respected economists and monetary cranks, to cartoons
from The Economist.
