Title: English as an Additional Language in Research Publication and Communication
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=D&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11462
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 61
Description:

This book brings together a collection of selected empirical studies by
researchers and English for Academic Purposes professionals working with
scholars who use English as an additional language and who face barriers to
publication when communicating the results of their research in the
international context. The contributions have their origins in papers and
workshops presented at the conference «Publishing and Presenting Research
Internationally: Issues for Speakers of English as an Additional Language»
(PRISEAL), which took place at the University of La Laguna (Spain) from 11
to 13 January 2007. The various issues which are addressed in this volume
are grouped into three main themes: 1. Descriptive studies of linguistic
and rhetorical features of written and spoken academic genres. 2.
Contrastive studies of academic discourse with a focus on rhetorical
preferences of members of scientific communities across cultures,
disciplines and genres. 3. Studies which evaluate English for Academic
Purposes courses and materials in terms of how successfully they develop
the scholar's ability to communicate more effectively in English.
