Title: Academic Discourse
Written By: John Flowerdew
Series Title: Applied Linguistics and Language Study Series
Description:

Academic Discourse presents a collection of specially commissioned articles on the theme of academic discourse. Divided into sections covering the main approaches, each begins with a state of the art overview of the approach and continues with exemplificatory empirical studies. Genre analysis, corpus linguistics, contrastive rhetoric and ethnography are comprehensively covered through the analysis of various academic genres: research articles, PhD these, textbooks, argumentative essays, and business cases.

Academic Discourse brings together state-of-the art analysis and theory in a single volume. It also features:
- an introduction which provides a survey and rationale for the material
- implications for pedagogy at the end of each chapter
- topical review articles with example studies
- a glossary

The breadth of critical writing, and from a wide geographical spread, makes Academic Discourse a fresh and insightful addition to the field of discourse analysis.

John Flowerdew is Professor in the English Department of the City
University of Hong Kong.
