Book Information


Title: New Trends in Specialized Discourse Analysis
Edited By: Maurizio Gotti
Davide Simone Giannoni
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 44

This volume brings together a selection of contributions presented at the
15th European Symposium on Languages for Special Purposes, held at the
University of Bergamo (Italy) from 29 August to 2 September 2005. The
conference title, "New Trends in Specialized Discourse", reflects the
emphasis given to recent orientations in research, coming from established
as well as new authors in the field.

As suggested by the title of this volume, the analysis of specialized
discourse calls for a specialized discourse analysis. When applied linguists
deal with vocational discourses, they are faced with a double challenge: on
the one hand, an understanding of textualisations often alien to the general
language; on the other hand, the use of analytical tools designed specifically
for their investigation. The studies presented in this volume position
themselves somewhere along this continuum, focusing alternatively on
converging/diverging features of texts and discourses.
